Preparing for Gleanings (Oct. 22, 2018)

In preparation for gathering food from a farm to bring to a food bank, students study Leviticus 19, which commands farmers to leave some food unharvested for the poor and the foreigner to gather: “When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest… Leave them for the poor and the foreigner.”

Here students depict what the poor in the United States would be like without food, then with the food we will provide.
