Historically it’s been challenging to have various faith organizations and denominations partner together, but the Canadian Foodgrains Bank has managed to bring many together with the common goal of ending world hunger. Listen in as Pugeni and James chat about why there is still hunger, its local and global complexities, and the ways you can join the movement to end world hunger! Pugeni also shares his personal experience with hunger, coming to Canada from Zimbabwe, and how our cultural lens shapes our global perspective.
