In the weeks leading up to Christmas, there’s going to be a lot on television: holiday baking specials, animated Santa shows, and commercials for the newest “gotta-have-it” toy. Unfortunately, what we’ve really “gotta-have” -- greater awareness of hunger in America -- is getting little airtime.
Every holiday season, there are children who aren’t opening presents or celebrating with a Christmas feast. Surrounded by our own blessings, it can be more difficult to think of those in need and those who are hungry. A new documentary, A Peace of Bread: Faith, Food, and the Future, is looking to change that by bringing attention to the problem of hunger in the United States by highlighting the uplifting work of young activists across the country.
Produced by Diva Communications and being shown by ABC, the film looks at faith-based groups, including Bread for the World, and the different approaches they are taking to end hunger. Several Bread staff members, including Rev. David Beckmann, Rev. Derrick Boykin, Holly Hight, and other activists, are featured in the film.
For a little inspiration to start off your holiday season, be sure to watch A Peace of Bread when it plays in your area. Find out when A Peace of Bread will air by checking the broadcasting schedule here.
