"Fast for Food Challenge"
Friday Saturday Sunday March 22-23-24, 2013
Fast for Food Challenge: You may already be familiar with this event from the latest Middle Path newsletter. Some of the children in our locality have little, or nothing, to eat from Friday when school is out, until the school provided breakfast on Monday. We are trying to get people in our local religious community and others to join us in this effort. The idea is that everyone will meet in the upstairs of the Vipassana Buddhist Church / Center for Buddhist development on Friday March 22 at 7:00 PM for a kick off. We'll fast from lunch of Friday the 22nd, until Sunday March 24 at 12:00 PM. At that time we'll meet again in the upstairs of the Church to break the fast with a potluck lunch and we'll make donations to the Food Bank for their "Buddy Pack" program in whatever amount you feel like giving after having gone without food over the weekend. Eva Seibert from the Food Bank will be there on Sunday to speak to us and to personally accept our donations for Buddy Pack.
