335. MissionCast – 2013 Festival of Sharing

Haiti

The 2013 Festival of Sharing was held at the Missouri State Fairgrounds in Sedalia Missouri. For 36 years the Festival of Sharing has been about the ministry of alleviating hunger through gifts of mercy, advocacy and education. After working all morning the problem of hunger was brought home to the youth as they were divided into groups to receive typical food given in food lines. Group one lined up in front of the Asia food line and received a lunch of white rice. The Africa group received cold beans. Latin Americans received brown rice and Americans received mac & cheese, however, not the kind made with fresh milk and butter. The discussion afterward helped the youth to understand that their work during the Festival of Sharing was directed to helping such people represented in the food lines around the world.
