Today’s show is a perfect follow up to the three shows that I’ve done recently on Hunger and Homelessness in America. Back a few weeks ago, I interviewed Joel Berg, the Executive Director of the New York City Coalition Against Hunger. I followed that up with two shows on hunger in America, huge agribusiness, government crop price supports, and the struggles of the poor.
Today, Pete and Sue Fullerton join me to talk about their ‘hands on’ efforts to minister to those among us who are less fortunate. Those suffering from Hunger, or Food Insecurity, if you will, are hiding in plain sight, right in our neighborhoods, or sometimes, in the woods around us.
Pete’s passion and his mission is Truck of Love. Their web site is www.truckoflove.org. Pete provides food and assistance of many types to a group of individuals who live in the woods in South Carolina. Sue works at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Rock Hill, and they have a food ministry twice each week.
I also shared about a serendipitous event that happened at the Charlotte Moral Monday gathering recently. I happened to meet Si Kahn, who has been writing, performing and recording music for over 40 years. Si will be joining us in the studio on October 12th with the Looping Brothers, a group from Germany who will be touring with Si throughout North Carolina. It should be fun, and musically entertaining.
