Last month, Bread members in South Dakota honored the memory of the late Sen. George McGovern, a tireless advocate for hungry and poor people, with this lovely arrangement.

"Whenever one of our key South Dakota people pass away, our Bread South Dakota folks send at least one representative and an arrangement with a globe, a loaf of bread, and wheat," says Tammy Walhof is Bread for the World's senior regional organizer for the Upper Midwest. "Sometimes, people use flowers from their gardens as well.

For funeral of the Sen. McGovern, whose home state was South Dakota, Walhof says that the person charged with bringing the arrangement wanted to dress it up more, to so she sought out the help of a local florist. "It became quite the beautiful arrangement," Walhof says.
