Caritas Video: Allegory of the Long Spoons

Last December, Caritas Internationalis (the parent organization of U.S. Catholic Charities and Catholic Relief Services) launched One Family Food for All. The campaign included the Global Wave of Prayer, led by Pope Francis, to bring communities around the world together (including Albuquerque) to pray and commit to end world hunger. Caritas has continued its outreach and education efforts over the year, releasing this video on Sept. 1.

"Based on an ancient story about hunger and sharing, this animated video is part of Caritas’ “One Human Family, Food for All” campaign. The “allegory of the long spoons” teaches us that when we struggle to feed only ourselves, everyone goes hungry. But when we focus on our neighbor’s hunger, we discover there are ways to feed everyone.
