Beginning next week, the Matthew 25 Network will run a new ad on Christian radio stationsin Ohio connecting the Christian mandate to care for the least among uswith the economic crisis in Ohio and around the country.  FormerCongressman Tony Hall, a pro-life Democrat from Dayton, Ohio is featured in the ad.

Former Congressman Hall is famous for his 22 day hunger fast when in 1993 Congress abolished the House Select Committee on Hunger, where he served as Chairman.  Hall was appointed by PresidentBush to be Ambassador to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organizationwhere he served until 2005.

The ad entitled “When did we see you hungry?” is the first in a seriesof radio ads that the Matthew 25 Network will be releasing inspired by25th Chapter in the Gospel of Matthew, where Jesus asks his followers to care for “the least of these.”
