World Hunger Day

I must confess I'm a day late on this issues - World Hunger Day was yesterday, May 28th.  Nonetheless, hunger is a global problem - it affects those in the U.S., Africa, Europe, Asia, and everywhere else.  It's also a problem that United Methodists from around the world are trying to tackle, often in ways that connect directly to their local contexts.  Here are two articles about United Methodists addressing the problem of hunger and some prayer resources for all you others out there doing the same.
