Last week we attended the Texas Hunger Initiative's Hunger and Justice Gathering. This was a day-long event focused on poverty and community action. Among the speakers were an economics professor, a sociologist, an epidemiologist who talked about the prevalence of disease in the "food deserts" of urban areas, and the director of Texas Impact who talked about engaging churches in advocacy and action in behalf of the poor.
We were pleased to have a follow-up conversation with one of the key players who is helping us position ourselves to provide some service that will help these like-minded organizations work more effectively as a cohesive whole.

they appreciate the candy and fruit she always brings them.
