Last Friday we celebrated harvest time and we thanked God for the wonderful food we all have to eat while at the same time remembering our responsibility to share what we have with others. One of the reasons that we do this is because we believe that it is important to uphold the rights of the child as stated in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child .
Article 24 says You have the right to nutritious food, yet one in nine people go to bed hungry in our world. We want to help to do something about this. The food that we collected will be shared out among people in the Gateshead area that really need it.
