In September, look for Silence Can Kill: Speaking Up to End Hunger and Make our Economy Work for Everyone by Arthur Simon, founder of Bread for the World, with a foreword by Rick Steves.
Sharon d’Amico has donated this book and shared that the book is full of hope in spite of the dire title.
From the jacket,
“Hunger thrives on the racial, social, and economic inequalities that are eating away at the soul of our nation and pulling us apart. But ending hunger could now become the cause that brings us together across partisan lines to make our economy include everyone and work for everyone.”
Ending hunger in the United States is a reasonable and tractable goal. The book lays out a plan and includes a call to action, with several suggestions of things you can do, big and small. If you have ever been frustrated by the limitations of charity to solve national and local crises like hunger, this book is for you.
