Feeding the Hungry: Paoli Mennonite Fellowship Responds to Worldwide Needs

PAOLI, IN — While members of the Paoli Mennonite Fellowship are giving of their resources to help fight hunger in parts of the globe where food supplies are short, the congregation is finding the effort is reciprocal. The fellowship’s Lonnie Sears, who initiated the group’s involvement with a nonprofit organization called Foods Resource Bank, shared his view that the effort isn't just about giving, but also is about receiving.“PMF has made connections with people in other countries,” Sears wrote in an email. “FRB emphasizes working together with others and learning from others. While we in the U.S. are materially wealthy, other world regions without financial resources can have great social and spiritual wealth to share with us. We try to recognize ways that we can exchange these gifts rather than thinking we just give to others.”
