Food for the Soul, Aug. 26, 2007


Last Monday The Chef From Hell posted this Food For Thought item on his Food Blog. Rather than steal Chef JP's thunder, I strongly recommend you check out his post, which points to a slide show on Time Magazine's site with photos from Peter Menzel's book, "Hungry Planet", illustrating what families from around the world eat in a week.

The Chef also encourages us to check in on the U.S. Food Policy blog to gain a greater understanding of issues surrounding food production.

All this underscores that most of us are truly blessed in this country to have enough food to fill our bellies and, in some cases, to maintain our part-time passions. Try to take a moment each day to give thanks for our abundance and for those who are responsible for producing the food we eat. And pray for those families and individuals in other parts of the world, our nation and our communities who are less fortunate.

Waste not.
