Father Larry Snyder, David Beckmann Challenge You to #shareyourplate

Last December, Catholic Charities USA, Bread for the World, and others answered Pope Francis and Caritas Internationalis’ call for a global wave of prayer to end hunger as part of the One Family #FoodForAll campaign.

Rev. Larry Snyder, president of Catholic Charities USA, created his own cooking video as a way to build on the #FoodForAll campaign. He then sent out a challenge to others to do the same before November 27 - including a special invitation to Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World, to participate in the #ShareYourPlate challenge. With the help of the help of two young anti-hunger activists, Elizabeth Quill and Margaret Hudak, prepared this video.

Rev. Beckmann then challenged  travel writer Rick Steves, community food systems expert Sharon Thornberry, and Bread for the members and anti-hunger activists around the country to create a cooking video or post a photo at #ShareYourPlate via their Twitter or Facebook page and tag @bread4theworld,

Participants are urged to share a virtual meal and help bring awareness to the problem of hunger.
 By sharing a cooking video, the #ShareYourPlate campaign reminds us that food is something we all share. Read More in Bread Blog
