Stuffed or starved?

This is the map of how the world eats ... pretty shocking and quite guilt-inducing for the fat person I am.
Every year the Protestant and Roman Catholic churches in Switzerland launch an ecumenical Lenten campaign Pain pour le prochain and Action de Carême ~ Brot für Alle and Fastenopfer. The campaigns are as much about raising awareness as about raising money. They provide wonderful liturgical resources in French and German and other information in Spanish, Italian and English. This year's campaign is a Healthy Climate to Guarantee Daily Bread. Cleverly linking climate change and issues around malnutrition and the right to food.
