The Global Food Crisis

As the cost of food has increased, the world's poor are the most affected.  The rise in the price of food due to gas prices, higher demand, etc., has caused a crisis among those living in poverty. Please check out Compassion's website for more information about what we can do to help ease the crisis...the first and foremost being prayer.   

"Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?  Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter --when you see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood?"
Isaiah 58:6-7
