“I have been, for many years, deeply moved by the work of Hunger Action Network. I am grateful they have had the guts to tackle the tough root reasons for hunger—lack of affordable housing, lack of adequate government funds for the disabled and unemployed, and lack of a decent wage. We have to be willing to publicly proclaim what is unpopular to change what is destructive to human life. To paraphrase Job 14:19): Hunger Action Network is ‘the water that wears the rock away.’ ”
