The Hungry: April 14 & 15, 2000


American Flatbread – Flatbread Kitchen

Dedication

Friday and Saturday, April 14 and 15, 2000

Tonight’s menu and baking are dedicated to

 

The Hungry

 

Who are hungry? And why?

They are the homeless and mentally ill, abandoned without care;

 

They are my grandmothers, living as best they can

On minimum social security because… because

Their job was mothering, and farming;

 

They are farmers without wives and mothers

Without husbands, working at jobs that do not

Pay a living wage;

 

They are people just life you and me, whose

Life road has turned unimaginably hard for reasons

We would not want to know;

 

They are children, thousands upon thousands,

Hundreds of thousands, who are poor for

No reason of their own;

And they are all but invisible because the

Poverty of hunger

Resides within.

 

Tonight, American Flatbread is honored to bake in benefit for the Vermont Foodbank. Hunger hurts, the foodbank helps.

                                                            Thank you for coming,

                                                                                                Love,

                                                                                                            George
