Food/Hunger Efforts

Food/Hunger Efforts

In the ancient Franciscan story “The Hungry Brother and the River Torto,” one of Francis’ brothers confessed that he was dying of hunger. Francis immediately ordered the others to “gather some herbs and vegetables and whatever else they could find for all to have a good nourishing meal. He said this so that [the hungry brother] would not have to be humiliated by eating alone.” We too are called to help those who are hungry, sharing what we have and doing so in a way that preserves the dignity of our brothers and sisters in need.
