Aired 2011-12. Presented by a Consortium of Jewish Organizations; Produced by Diva Communications Hunger is perhaps the most enduring affliction in the history of the world – from Biblical times to present day – and one to which it seems there is no easy solution. A Peace of Bread: Faith, Food, and the Future explores the work not only of the steadfast caregivers in soup kitchens and food pantries, but also that of a new generation of anti-hunger activists – all of whom driven by faith in a brighter future. Agricultural sustainability, social network community building, creative entrepreneurship, advocacy to reshape food policy – these are just some of the ways in which faith based groups are bringing a new perspective to an old problem. With 36 million people suffering from hunger in our nation, the issue requires a combined effort from many visionaries. David Scherer (a.k.a. AGAPE*) uses the power of music to raise hunger awareness amongst youth across a 100+ show tour every year. As a young college student, Eli Winkelman founded Challah for Hunger to raise money and awareness for hunger through the production and sale of challah bread. The organization has since grown to over 40 chapters in schools across the nation and beyond. The young men of Gozanga’s College High School’s Campus Kitchen spend their summers cooking and delivering meals to the less fortunate in the shadow of the nation’s capitol. At the Jewish Farm School in upstate New York, Nati Passow works toward a long-held dream of agricultural sustainability. Participants connect to their faith by working the land and growing food for the cause. With a generous grant from Odyssey Networks and the support of the New York Board of Rabbis, the National Council of Churches, Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, the Presbyterian Church in America, Bread for the World, the Union for Reform Judaism, and the Westside Campaign to End Hunger, A Peace of Bread hopes to restore a nation’s conviction that we can eliminate hunger. All it takes is a few creative solutions, the will to end hunger and a lot of big hearts.
