Something that is common to all cultures and peoples in the world is food. Food is the most basic necessity to live, yet many people and communities in the world lack access or means to this fundamental ingredient of human life.
Food is treated more and more like a commodity, when it is supposed to be made available to every person on this planet. The commoditization of food is threatening the lives and livelihoods of the most vulnerable.
As we study the Bible together, we will see what God has to say about the importance of food as a gift, and sharing this gift with one another. We will learn about the impact, scope, and causes of hunger, and how we can fight for food security together as the body of Christ.
We will meet other kids from India, Bolivia, Kenya, and Rwanda and hear them share incredible stories of their lives changed through gaining food security with the help of CBM’s projects all over the world.
Also, we will learn about the Christian concepts of gratitude, compassion, love, generosity, hospitality and community. Children will be challenged to understand God’s desire for all people to be food secure, and how they can be a part of making a difference by taking action!
Be sure to share photos of your fundraisers, activities and times together if you would like to share your ideas with other Baptist churches in the country! E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your photos, or feedback.

Hi! Habari! My name is Anne and this is my family. Welcome to our village in rural Kenya. We live in a nice house with two rooms. A typical day for me and my friends looks like this: I wake up at 5:00am. After washing up outside, we eat a little breakfast, usually tea and dinner leftovers from the night before - either ugali (maize porridge) or githeri (boiled maize and beans). Then I get dressed for school! At 6:00am I start my walk to school. Many kids in my region walk a long time, sometimes over an hour,

In place of a story for this lesson, consider leading a discussion on food instead. When God created the world, he said it was very good! Food is part of the goodness of creation, a gift from God and an expression of his love. Throughout the Bible, we see his gracious and generous provision of food. He planted a garden (Gen 2:8) and asked the first human beings to tend and care for it, giving them every fruit and plant to eat. When God delivered the people of Israel from slavery in Egypt, he provided manna in the wilderness.
Hola! That is “hello” in Spanish, one of the languages we speak here in Bolivia. My name is Hector. Welcome to my community of Charapaxi! I’d like to tell you about my biggest hero. It’s my dad. His name is Victor. My dad got training from church development workers to help become the best farmer in our community. Today he is the model farmer here! He even shows other families what they can do with their farms, so it can become like ours, with fruit trees and organic crops (plants that do not use chemicals). We even have a
