Beans & Rice and the Power of Simple

Something so simple can be so powerful and lifesaving.

A few weeks ago, we presented a challenge: to eat only beans and rice for at least one meal a day for a week. The point was simple. During that week, those of us who took the challenge ate like millions around the world. We did it to experience—in a small way—how those millions live each day. They live without stocked pantries and generous options for sustenance. They live without the luxury of meal planning and take-out dinners.

Beans & Rice and the Power of Simple

By spending just one week experiencing the difference in how we normally eat to how it is to eat only beans and rice, we walked a mile in another person’s shoes. In other words, we ate for a week from someone else’s bowl.

Doing this has helped Feeding The Nations reach even more hungry children around the world because those who took on the challenge gave up not just their typical meals, but also donated to the cause of feeding nations. It’s great to know that we can make a small sacrifice and at the same time come to the aid of someone who is destitute of food because of wars, flooding, drought or a disaster of mankind.

Thank you to each and every one of you who stepped up and took the challenge. You have made a difference in the lives of many. Thank you for partnering with us. If you missed the opportunity, it’s not too late to join us with a donation so that we can feed even more nations. Simply click here to do so.
