According to the UN World Food Programme Web site, 805 million people—or roughly one in nine —don’t have enough food to eat to lead a healthy lifestyle. Poor nutrition causes 45 percent of deaths in children under five years old. Hunger kills more people annually than AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Here in McFarland, the local Food Pantry helps hundreds of local residents on a monthly basis.
Roger Brooks and Martha Olsen are coordinating our efforts in this very important event to help those who have little or nothing to eat. You may pledge to support MUCC’s team here, or see Roger Brooks after worship on Sunday, October 19 to make a cash or check donation.
We invite you to pray for our walkers (Dawn Algrim, Roger Brooks, Barb Baumgartner, Lisa Ludwig, Martha Olsen, Pastor Kerri, Heather Ross, Rachel Saladis, Randy Zoran), for those our team's fundraising will benefit, and for all those who struggle to access enough healthy food to sustain them.
