THE BOSU PROJECT When we close the doors for the day, we promise to leave bags outside full of tasty food.. If you see anyone on the streets of Manchester or Didsbury who look hungry, let them know where they can find a meal in a bag.
*40% of All Food is thrown out. The amount of food thrown out in the USA is valued at $162 billion.

*RIO DE JANEIRO — On a warm night in a fraying neighborhood of Rio de Janeiro, far from the lights of the Olympic stadiums, Inez Ignez cautiously works her way around the chefs, mopping the floor of this pioneering soup kitchen.
In a few minutes, the first guests — mostly homeless and poor — will trickle in through the front doors of the Refettorio Gastromotiva to enjoy a three-course gourmet meal, drawing on surplus food from suppliers to the Olympic Village and other events across the city.
What if we were starving and destitute. I do not know if anyone in this group has had such an experience or personally known anyone in that situation.
Matthew 6:26“Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your Heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?”
Hunger can not only be physical, but spiritual as well. Consider if you will, walking into your house and smelling something delicious. Every sense you have is delighted. Everything there was made for you to indulge yourself. Would you ignore it and just go about your business, or would you sit down with great anticipation, partaking with great delight? There it is, right there in front of you, the Word of God! Take, read, study, see just how fulfilling Scripture can be. It fills pangs of hunger with Truth and quenches the most profound thirst.
Our God does not throw table scraps to His children. Each and every day, we are blessed to have a buffet of treasures set before us to enjoy!
Psalm 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Smell the perfect aroma of fresh and pure nourishment. Let your heart hear the joy, hope and Truth trickling through the pages. See the Words of Almighty God in your very hands! Touch and feel the freedom of clinging on to your own copy of Scripture. Taste the greatness of Almighty God!
O Lord, our God
Thank You for this and every day we’ve been given
Please forgive us of sins we committed against You, others and ourselves
We give You praise for the magnificent food You give us
Both physically and spiritually
Lord, please direct us in the path to be responsible for what we feed ourselves in both ways
We only want to take from Your Table, Father
There is nothing in the world’s cornucopia able to sustain or satisfy us
Things may seem attractive initially, but they are poison
As the enemy lured Adam and Eve away from You
By his enticing and seductive lies
Today he continues to draw Your children
Down paths that lead to spiritual starvation
We put our trust in You, Father
For the provision of all we need
Not only to survive, but thrive
If we abide in You, Lord
We will continue to grow stronger
Please just give us a distaste for what the world has to offer
Please let our body, mind and spirit
Be intolerant, sensitive and discerning enough
To want nothing of anything outside of You
Please cause a repulsion within us for all things
Counterfeiting our Lord and Savior
Rather, please draw us to crave
Hunger and thirst for Your delicious Truth!
Indeed, nothing else can satisfy!
In the Name of Jesus
Taste And See That The Lord Is Good
