The first day of the 2012 Annual Hunger Fight saw nearly 1.3 million meals packaged. While 5 million meals will not deliver a T.K.O. to global hunger, it does show that at least 15,000 people here in Iowa don’t think its right that 1 billion people go to bed hungry every night. That’s where Oxfam America steps in – to create those lasting solutions to poverty, so that a day may come when we can, together, deliver a massive blow to global hunger and the work of organizations like MFTH is needed far less.
