Feeding the world feeds the soul.


I have just returned from one week in Belle Haven, VA. I chaperoned and co-lead a group of 20 wonderful teens to glean the potato fields of the Delmarva peninsula. I took 4 teens from the St. Stephens after-school program in Boston where I volunteer. We joined 14 teens from St Anne’s in the Fields in Lincoln, MA. We worked with the Society of St. Andrew and their Harvest of Hope at Camp Occohannock in VA. We all picked over 20,000 lbs of potatoes to feed the hungry. One day we helped various community service programs in the area. In small groups we played games that taught us about the balance of economic power in the world, hunger issues, the plight of the world’s poor, migrant workers that pick our food and the invisible children of Africa. Did you know that 1 of 6 in the world live with chronic hunger? Ask yourself, now, are going to be part of the problem or the solution? What are you doing to help the world and not merely consuming? You are not what you own! Please listen to this and find a way to help. You will feel full.
