Every morning, thousands of Food for the Hungry staff  walk, bicycle or drive into some of the most vulnerable communities in the world. Ending poverty is ultimately about the relationships and sharing of ideas that happen during these daily exchanges around the world, day in and day out. Eva Amor is one of FH’s staff building these […]

U.S. Presidential Inauguration 2013

Reflections from the Inauguration

Several things came together in my mind as I stood with a throng of people of all ages, sizes and colors on the Capitol Mall in Washington, D.C., to witness the second inauguration of Barack Obama as president of the United States. The first was the historical significance of the year 2013. It was 150 years […]

Life after the “fiscal cliff”

We were warned about it for months. The American people fretted. Financial markets dropped. Some warned of the possibility of total chaos. What the U.S. government lovingly called “sequestration,” the media soon dubbed as the “fiscal cliff,” or simply “the cliff.” The entire nation was told to get ready for a plunge over that cliff […]

Have a merry, happy and blessed Christmas

Only a few more days until we celebrate the birth of the Savior of the World. One of my favorite stories surrounding the birth of Christ is that of the Magi. The Magi have really good “cred” in the Christmas story. Nobody traveled further to see the Messiah. Nobody suffered more in that traveling. Nobody left more behind (Persian […]

Do we have the courage to protect the innocents?

It’s hard to write this morning. I was planning to wax eloquent about the Farm Bill legislation that is currently stuck in Congress and the “fiscal cliff” that we face as a nation on December 31. But those topics pale in comparison to the national tragedy in Connecticut. We all know this story very well […]

Honoring Senator Frist

I got on the plane in Cincinnati bound for Nashville and took my seat toward the back of the plane. While doing some Food for the Hungry (FH) work on my laptop, a tall, stately gentlemen caught my eye. I thought to myself, “I know I know him, but from where?” And then I connected […]

Focused on Children, Dedicated to Transformation

I’m in the Dominican Republic this week, where I have the incredible privilege of joining my Food for the Hungry (FH) colleagues from all over Latin America as we work together to learn how to build a new model of programming in our field countries. We call it “Child-Focused Community Transformation” (CFCT), which is FH’s “essentials” […]

‘Tis the Season

The season is upon us again.  Not the changing of the leaves. Not the very end of a hurricane period that seemed to have been a quiet one, only to strike with a vengeance in the eleventh hour.  Not the time of turkeys and pumpkins. No, the season that I am referring to comes only […]

Zumba, multiplication and blessings

I am amazed when I read the passage in the New Testament about Jesus feeding the 5,000. The miracle of bread and fish multiplying before everyone’s eyes must have been unbelievable to watch. But even more interesting to me is the role played by the disciples. Jesus asks them a simple, yet profound question, “How many […]
