Ten teens and four adults gathered at Hoffman United Methodist Church this past weekend to participate in the 30 Hour Famine. During the 30 Hour Famine, participants spend 30 hours with no food to experience what it feels like to be hungry. The purpose of the 30 Hour event is to raise awareness and raise money for world hunger. Worldwide, 925 million people are hungry. Every day, as many as 11,000 children under age 5 die due to hunger-related causes. That’s one kid every 8 seconds. The participants learn about hunger, and then, they do something about it. They raise funds. They experience hunger for themselves. It was a weekend of fun games, learning about world hunger, worship, and much more. Best of all, it was a time of saving lives from hunger.
