'Study shows children in Michigan more likely to face hunger than overall population across America." 5/1/19
One in every six Michigan children will go to bed hungry tonight. That's enough to fill Spartan stadium nearly 5x.
'Child Hunger & Poverty in Michigan' -
9,000 children in Washtenaw County are food insecure.
We discussed the Health, School, Work and Society impacts of hunger and we all pay a high price.
In room 217 was a virtual grocery store where each child took their daily SNAP (supplemental nutrition assistance program) benefit ($4.11) and shopped for breakfast, lunch, and supper.
We discussed ways that make an impact upon hunger and in the meantime, we're headed to Food Gatherers this Saturday and we'll create 300 meals for those who experience hunger in Detroit at the end of the month.
Faith and Deeds
14 What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them? 15 Suppose a brother or a sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and well fed,” but does nothing about their physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.
18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”
Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. ~James 2:14-18
