Abstract:

A Peace of Bread: Faith, Food and the Future is a compelling and heart-felt look at how young, and not so young, faith leaders are trying to finally make a dent in this country's 49 million people (17 million of which are children) that are experiencing hunger. With faiths' enduring mandate to "feed the hungry," A Peace of Bread: Faith, Food, and the Future explores the work not only of the steadfast caregivers in soup kitchens and food pantries, but also that of a new generation of anti-hunger activists - all of whom driven by faith in a brighter future. Agricultural sustainability, social network community building, and advocacy to reshape food policy - these are just some of the ways in which faith based groups are bringing a new perspective to an old problem. A Peace of Bread: Faith, Food, and the Future reminds us that we are "not obligated to finish the work (of perfecting the world) but neither are you allowed to desist from it." (Pirket Avot 2:16) And with millions people suffering from hunger in our nation, the issue requires the combined effort of us all.
