Picture a bare dinner plate, with only a few scattered empty ketchup packets in evidence, and these words written on the plate: "To 18,000 kids in Indianapolis, this is dinner."
16Oct Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., The Interfaith Hunger Initiative ("IHI") - invites the community to give up their lunch that day and join them on Monument Circle to learn more about hunger in our community and around the world, and to become engaged in the war against hunger. It is a war that can be won when we come together.  The event will be emceed by local journalist, speaker and former TV news anchor Anne Ryder. She will welcome to the podium Jim Morris, President of Pacers Sports & Entertainment and former Executive Director of the United Nations World Food Program, as well as several faith leaders.

Information on the hunger situation and how to get involved will be available from several organizations. The public is encouraged to give up their lunch for that day -- experience an Un-Lunch Hour -- and donate their lunch money to help those who often go hungry every day at lunch. Long-range awareness and commitment are the goals of IHI, however, not just a one-shot donation.  For complete information on the mission and goals of the IHI, go to www.interfaithhungerinitiative.org.
