Christmas Feeding 2011 CompressedFeeding can prove to be extremely difficult, as there is always tension between short-term giving and long-term sustainability. The proverb “Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime” is true. But, tell that to a woman in the hospital, who just gave birth to a child and now is responsible to gather her own food. Tell that to the kids going to school on empty stomachs that are now expected to learn. In these cases, we have to address the need directly in front of us.
