Youths ‘starved’ to fight hunger

Every day, 14,000 children around the world die from hunger and malnutrition, according to the Christian charitable organization World Vision.

Church youth groups from Baldwin County came together Friday and Saturday to participate in the “30-hour Famine” and community service in hopes that their efforts will raise awareness of world hunger and reduce the number of hunger-related child deaths per year.

“This is the first time youths from St. Andrew by the Sea Community Church in Gulf Shores, Providence United Methodist Church in Spanish Fort and Christ Presbyterian Church in Daphne have teamed up to participate in the 30-hour Famine,” said Sharla Berry, director of Youth Ministries at Christ Presbyterian Church
