For 8 weeks in March to May, volunteers, staff and board of Isaiah 58 Ministries will gather for a program on Food Insecurity, designed by JustFaith. From their website, they explain: “In partnership with Bread for the World, this Just Faith program inspires faith-filled action to end hunger: (1) to raise awareness of the causes and consequences of food insecurity; (2) to create solidarity between those with access to food and those experiencing food insecurity; (3) to cultivate personal and group action and advocacy to end hunger.”
As a part of this program, participants will read two books: I Was Hungry: Cultivating Common Ground to End an American Crisis by Jeremy Everett and The End of Hunger: Renewed Hope for Feeding the World by Jenny Eaton Dyer and Catherine Falsani.
Isaiah 58 Ministries seeks to offer these opportunities to our volunteers on a regular basis, as a way of us continuing our own education about the work, and building team capacity to respond. We are grateful to Julie Hesed and Linda Larimer for facilitating this gathering. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Meredith.
