Feeding was an important part of Jesus' ministry, and he made clear to his followers that their responsibility to feed the hungry was non-negotiable. (See Matthew 25:31–40.) During the holiday season in November and December, countless churches, schools, and community groups organize or participate in efforts to provide food to hungry individuals and families. But hunger and food insecurity are problems year round, not just at Thanksgiving and Christmas. This summer, consider organizing a food drive through your church or workplace. Or simply make a cash donation. Because food banks can purchase food in bulk at a discount, cash donations go further than donations of non-perishable foods.
