How do we feed the world’s starving-Feeding the starving in the United States


Many holy men lived their entire lives, and sometimes lost them to copy the scriptures and the Gospels of Jesus’ disciples. Their sacrifices reinforced the faith and provided the bible. Yes, there was corruption and evil, holy wars where both sides were wrong but the faith if not the church did battle evil. The holy ones in the trenches suffering to help their fellow man with love and compassion wrestled evil hand to hand. Each missionary is the worker that paints the art giving it beauty, the beauty of the love in his or her heart.

The confederation of missionaries we read about up to this point all share the same effective, efficient food system and donors. They are independent organizations that benefit from Feed My Starving Children  http://fmsc.org and its juggernaut operation. Can you imagine needing to feed the starving and you hear Feed My Starving Children are in town, juggernaut. Please visit their web site, I was blown away at what they do.

Now I look to organizations feeding the starving in the United States. Who is starving in the country and who is feeding them, these questions will provide some illumination on how we feed the starving?

The Feeding America network of more than 200 member food banks has created a strong foundation geared towards getting wholesome staples to the 37 million people we serve each year. Through the assistance of local and national food assistance programs, Feeding America is able to provide nutritious, fresh foods to Americans struggling with hunger; safe and nurturing places for children to have a meal; emergency assistance for disaster victims; as well as a chance at self-sufficiency for adults trying to break the cycle of poverty and hunger.
