These new innovations have provided the ability to share Gods word at greater distances by sharing the gift of food. As far as Christian obligation is concerned, Gods word commands Christians to help the less fortunate (poor and disadvantaged). Proverbs 21:13 states “Those who shut their ears to the cries of the poor will be ignored in their own time of need.” This scripture tells us that we should work to meet the needs of the poor which is good stewardship. The advancement in technologies do play a vital role in evangelization and fulfilling the Christian obligation to the poor and disadvantage in that foods of all kind is distributed all over the world to the needy and hungry everywhere in the United States and other countries. Christian and evangelistic organizations such as, Feed the Children, Feeding America, Food for the Poor, and Save the Children sponsor shipment of foods to feed the hungry, but it also allows for the word of God to go forth.
“We have to make it cool to be active and engaged, to be conscious about our environment and what we put into our bodies. That’s the way we shift the culture. We have to set the trend.” Through the Power of One, Broccoli City will have activated over one thousand volunteers before the festival. They’re building community gardens, planting trees, cleaning up public spaces, preparing meals for the homeless and much more. “We’ve created a premium for doing work in the community” said Perkins.
The common theme of these passages is that the narrators want to contribute to the world or at least their communities. This pattern is recognisable in “Clearing Path’s to the Past” when the narrator thinks “I can’t grow tomatoes anything like my grandfather’s, but my shoveling will suffice.” This shows the narrator’s desire to live up to expectations set for him/her early in their life. An example of a similar desire in the passage “To be of use” is the quote “I want to be with the people who submerge in the task…” The narrator is referring to people who resolve issues with haste and pull their weight in society. These passages can be interpreted to mean that contributing to society is a desire that everyone feels they need to fulfill in
Personally I feel that it’s important to give back to communities. I hope to keep involved helping out the community whether it 's through the school or other programs, like Feed My Starving Children. It would be an honor to become a National Honor Society member. I hope that i’ve shown the values that are required to join this
Since a higher education is becoming a necessity for getting a job, the solution to this food and shelter insecurity is to create private and government initiatives which will help support students with their basic needs throughout college. They propose that this can be done with food pantries funded through University Food Bank Alliance, and many other foundations and programs which will reduce the costs of food. Goldrick-Rab and Broton propose that these programs will solve the issue of hunger and homelessness through
The Ministries of Education in both Canada and U.S.A should revise the health curriculum to emphasise more on healthy eating and healthy body image to empower youth about the importance of having a healthy lifestyle. To reverse the obesity epidemic, community efforts should focus on supporting healthy eating and active living in a variety of settings. There are many different programs and policies that can contribute towards the creation of healthy community food environments. These include providing incentives for supermarkets or farmers markets to
Sanctioning families at the risk of obesity and hunger with knowledge, skills and confidence to generate healthy meals is included in the goals of MGH (MGH, nd, CCHI, cooking up confidence). The youth programs of MGH were aimed to impart health and science to the children and college students of Boston, Chelsea and Revere (MGH, nd, MGH Youth Programs). A goal of Revere CARES of MGH is to improve the health of the residents of Revere by improving healthy eating and living, and preventing substance abuse (MGH, nd, CCHI, Revere CARES). The 2012 community health needs assessment conducted by MGH developed strategies to connect youth and families for providing healthcare services in Charlestown and Revere communities and to provide prevention plan for substance abuse in Chelsea community. MGH started the center for community health improvement (CCHI) in 1995.
With this, Christians will enhance their role of service to God through the environment. “Churches should declare affirmation statements and initiate programs that show that the environmental sensitivity” (Baldwin, 2006). For instance recycling programs that are lead by churches encourage a pollution-free environment that encourages the continuing growth of the environment. Churches need to be leading individuals to plant trees by providing them with seedlings, to plant in their homes, public land, within the church and everywhere. “As a way of preserving water, Christians should take advantage of the solar and wind energy sources”(DeWitt, & Nash, 2009).
I personally believe that it starts with an individual to make a change, regardless of how small you start but it somehow makes a change. We provide children and families with the means to fight hunger and achieve food security. Food security means that families will know where their next meal is coming from — and that it will be enough nutritious food to live an active, healthy life. Also improve their skills so they can Increase agricultural productivity through improved seeds and farming practices, Improving access to markets so farming families can sell their surplus food, Teaching families and communities how to improve nutrition and dietary diversity and Managing resources in a sustainable way to prevent soil erosion, maintain soil fertility, use water more efficiently, and protect the environment. This approaches I
Jacksonville will need to evaluate opening up more grocery stores in Zone 1 in order to promote healthier lifestyles which can then provide more job opportunities in this area. Encouragement of active lifestyles by implementing walking and biking trails can aid families to prevent diabetes risk. Free diabetes screening at grocery stores and public locations such as libraries can help detect diabetes early. More importantly, these residents need to be provided of these healthcare screenings so that they may attend. Another idea would be incorporating health screening buses that comes to community weekly.
My proposal “Omega RU” is a starting point to solve this large-scale issue. The goal of this proposal is to knowledge students about Omega-3, its benefits, and the problems deficiency in Omega-3 can lead to. Students will also gain more accessibility to foods with high Omega-3s on campus and in dining halls. It is necessary to have funding for such a start-up project. Your position as the President of The Kresge Foundation, an institute that focuses on improving population health and community prevention of health care problems, is a impeccable funding source for my project.
As Rutendo Gambe said in the video, “The future is within us,” and I want to improve the world for the better. Wellesley encourages its students to follow their passions. Consequently, I’d be able to implement large-scale projects to help others, such as building garden plots in refugee camps that lack food resources or holding free sports classes in low-income neighborhoods to encourage
I know because the church is so close to my house I have seen them cleaning up neighborhoods that are so close to mine. When I asked Adolfo why he enjoys volunteer work he told me “I like making the communities look a lot cleaner and hopefully it will inspire the people watching us to do the same for their communities and families”. The Dynasty Youth- Ministry raises money to travel to other places where they can be of help. They recently sold tamales outside of the cities Sam’s club to raise money so they could travel to Mexico to help clean local neighborhoods that are in poverty. From what I have learned while conducting my research is that if people gave the church group a try
