Plumbline, a student led group seeking social justice at and with Wesley Theological Seminary, organized 37 students, faculty and staff to help pack 10,000 meals for children with Stop Hunger Now. Stop Hunger Now is an international hunger relief agency that has been fulfilling its commitment to end hunger for more than 12 years.
 
Wesley student Katy Wheat, who organized the event, said, "This year, Plumbline is focusing on justice issues surrounding food. We did this event with Stop Hunger Now and also brought a speaker, Daniel Stulac, down from Princeton to speak about Farms and Churches."
 
She continued, "We think this issue is important because everybody eats, and it's important for us to be aware and informed consumers and members of the human family so that our decisions around food can have a positive, and not negative, impact. If it's something we need to do daily, it's something we should think about daily. What's more, I'm of the mindset that I am not truly whole until wholeness is available to all people; that is to say, feeding one child means that all benefit, in my mind."
 
We are grateful to have been sent students who are so devoted to seeing faith being put into practice. See them hard at work in the photo gallery below!
