"After learning how hunger affects one billion people worldwide, students from a tiny Inuit community on the Arctic Circle baked cinnamon buns, cupcakes and tarts to help end global hunger. In less than an hour, the Grade 9 students from the Tusavik School in Repulse Bay. The money was donated to Canadian Foodgrains Bank (CFB), a Winnipeg-based Christian group that provides food and aid to developing countries. The Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF) is a member. In a CFB press release, Pauline Kridluar, one of 13 students who took part, said 'It's the Inuit way to share'."

Text
Whereas General Synod has pledged itself to pursue a vigorous campaign against hunger, and
Whereas starvation is linked with overpopulation in many of the emerging Nations, and
Whereas the birthrate in these countries far exceeds the death rate from all causes, thus compounding the problem,
Be it resolved therefore,
That this General Synod considers it imperative that any action to combat hunger be linked closely to a simultaneously conducted vigorous campaign of instruction in the techniques of birth control. CARRIED in both Houses.

Reflecting on Thanksgiving, Primate Fred Hiltz notes: "One billion people in the world are hungry. Over four million people in Canada live in poverty. Thousands of people in First Nations and Inuit communities live without access to clean water and affordable, healthy food. As people of faith, we are called to hear the cry of the poor and to do everything we can so that their hope for a better life does not perish (Psalm 9:18, BAS). We have a moral responsibility to press world leaders to have unwavering political will in achieving the Millennium Development Goal 'to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger'."

"In other news, COGS: Learned about Fred Says, a new food security campaign of the Primate's World Relief and Development Fund (PWRDF), the relief and development arm of the Anglican Church of Canada. 'Have you eaten today ?' With that question, Laura Marie Piotrowicz introduced the campaign, which will be led by the primate, Archbishop Fred Hiltz. 'Have you eaten today ?' will be one of the 'Fredisms' in the campaign, which now has a dedicated website, fredsays.ca. The campaign is aimed at raising awareness about food security, which refers to the availability of food and people's access to it, according to PWRDF. In a video about the campaign that was shown to CoGS members, Hiltz says: 'In Canada, we tend to greet one another with 'How are you ?' But in other parts of the world, where food is scarce, a more common greeting is 'Have you eaten today ?' Fredsays.ca will offer resources, videos, stories and other information about the campaign".

"James 2:15-17. 'If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one you says to them,"Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill", and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that ? So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead'." "We should consider James' words and understand that our souls are fed as we act out our faith, as we move from 'Do you believe ?' to 'What are you going to do about it ?' Through PWRDF, what we are going to do about it is to work with communities around the world. To work with fishers and farmers as they ensure that they have enough to eat, just like fishers in Canada do. James gives us direction, and moves us from apathy to awareness. We must act on our faith, ensuring that no one suffers from hunger; because as he says, faith by itself, it it has no works is dead".

Text
World hunger, its challenge to affluent Western nations and Canada in particular, is the subject of a series of 15-minute radio programs under preparation for the Anglican Church of Canada, the Roman Catholic Church and the United Church of Canada.
"The Stork and the Plow" is the general title of 13 programs being produced for Interchurch Radio, the broadcasting arm of the three churches, by the Anglican Division of Communications. With the world facing the gravest famine in history as population growth continues to outstrip food production, the series will attempt to inform and arouse Canadians to be concerned enough to press for government action.
Canadians will also be urged to support church and relief agencies in their global projects for the alleviation of suffering.
Leaders in many fields related to the problem are being interviewed. Initially the program will provide an in-depth study of the scope and seriousness of food inadequacy.
Other subjects include the population explosion, family planning, technology and food production, the importance of protein in diet, waste and surplus, poverty, Canada's foreign aid program, voluntary aid projects, individual responsibility and Canada's future role.
The series is being produced for mid-winter release.

"As Canadians gathered to celebrate Thanksgiving, Archbishop Colin Johnson, metropolitan of the ecclesiastical province of Ontario, asked them to reflect on the 300,000 Ontarians who must rely on food banks to survive. The advertisement, written in the form of an open letter, by Archbishop Johnson appeared in the Toronto Star newspaper on 8 October 2009. Another ad is planned for December and the Christmas season.

"Sifa Naru is the widowed mother of three boys. She lost her husband to AIDS in 2009 and has been diagnosed as HIV+ herself. She was having difficulty staying on her anti-retroviral (ARV) medication, which is to be taken twice daily with food, because she often was able to eat twice a day, sometimes not even once". "With the generous donation of $25,000 from the Ottawa's GIFT campaign, PWRDF is funding a food aid package to provide two months of food to people who are starting their ARVs in Mozambique. The project will dramatically impact the lives of 400 AIDS patients over four years helping them to survive the shock of ARVs in their bodies which have been weakened by poor nutrition and hunger". "PWRDF's partner Association of Community Health (EHALE) will work with patients to help them learn about nutrition and to grow food for themselves once they are back on their feet".
