Wayzata Free

As thick clumps of falling snow interrupted the first week of spring, members of the Wayzata Free church braved the weather to pack meals. The four tables raced against each other to fill as many bags as possible and called out numbers as each box was sealed. After less than an hour, the group had packed over 11,000 meals! To end the night, they tried some of the food that they had made before heading back out into the cold Minnesota spring. Good job, packers!

KAHWM Thanks Wayzata Free for their time and donations.

Malawi

UNICEF reported that Malawi is facing the worst food crisis in nine years. The problem began last year during widespread flooding followed by a severe drought caused by El Nino. An estimated 2.8 million people are at risk of hunger. The majority of those people live in rural areas and rely almost exclusively

on farming. Compounding this crisis, the value of Malawi's currency has dropped causing sharp inflation of food prices, up to 200% on maize, a staple in the Malawian diet.
