One day that I remember in particular required us to work for certain items we needed to cook our meal. We worked from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. in order to get a simple meal. We delegated tasks, with some people cooking, others gardening and cleaning. Once we all had eaten, we felt immense love and respect for each other, as well as the realization that this is only a small fraction of what children in poverty have to face daily.
