OVERVIEW :

The end of hunger brings a wide variety of people together to share their thoughts, ideas and statistics on world hunger and its repercussions beyond hunger itself. Activists, scientists, politicians, people like Chef Rick Bayless and entertainers like Amy Grant and country singer Brad Paisley and the list goes on and on with names the reader will recognize and those not so well known.

Each short essay touches on different aspects of the hunger problem and what that author feels can be done about them. Also included are stories from the hungry themselves as well as those on the front lines of fighting hunger.

The book will inform, inspire and hopefully each reader will be stirred to follow Jesus’ command to feed the hungry.
