Vintage Photos: Anti-Hunger Events in Kansas City

As we begin 2012, we mark the occasion with a new format for the Bread New Mexico blog.  

I also thought it would be fun to begin the new year with some pictures from the past, specifically the 1980s.  These photos are from anti-hunger activities in Kansas City. 

I joined Bread for the World in 1983 when I was still living in the Midwest (even though I had heard about the organization back in New Orleans). A couple of years later I became volunteer grassroots coordinator in Missouri Fifth Congressional District. I held that post until we moved to New Mexico in 1992.  Here are some photos from that era..
