• Do some research to find families or groups in your community who go hungry. Talk with the manager of a homeless shelter or government-assisted housing complex to discover where best to carry out this experience. Ask for permission to bring a meal to these people one night.
• Choose a night when families normally enjoy a family dinner at home. Give each church family the name and address of a needy group. Give details on how to orchestrate the supper time experience in their home to household leaders only.
A true understanding of hunger is difficult. Most of us indulge in three lavish feedings a day plus snacks. Our bellies are rarely empty.
