Hunger Pangs – Day One of the 2020 Hunger Challenge – Eldon Kibbey


I normally eat a good breakfast by 7:30am, so it was not surprising to have hunger pangs by 8:30 on the first day of the 0-0-1 Challenge. I started the day with grape juice to take my pills, but I had to stop myself from eating the usual grapes and cherries which I usually enjoy.

By 10:30 I was looking forward to lunchtime, only to realize that I’m skipping lunch, too! Looks like a long afternoon!

Taking a nap was a good substitute for lunch, but I had to curb my desire for a snack after I got up!

A three-way Zoom call was a good diversion, and that meeting generated some ideas that needed to be developed, so it was good to have something to focus on, instead of thinking about my hunger pangs. Iced tea helped too – no sugar – I like it straight!

My wife does a great job with dinner, so our well-balanced evening meal is probably a lot better than that of most people who only eat one meal per day. They are the people we need to be thinking about!

What will it take to meet the needs of all people who have limited access to food?

Certainly, they have needs beyond just hunger, and that is what Faith, Hope & Love seeks to provide.

Think about your part in that! How can you help? It’s not too late to join me in the 0-0-1 Challenge of eating one meal a day!

Pray for those in Indianapolis, in Indiana, around the world, who are food insecure. Be thankful for what God has provided for you! Ask Him how He wants to use you to solve the problem!
