Indy Teens to Get "A Taste of Hunger"

More than 135 youth groups in the Indianapolis area will participate in World Vision's 30 Hour Famine from 26 through 27 February. They'll get a "taste of hunger" while performing hands-on community service and raising funds to fight world hunger.

For 30 hours, they'll go without food (consuming only liquids) to experience a bit of what the poorest families face every day. Teens will be participating in groups through churches, schools, youth groups and civic organizations.

The project, now in its 19th year, is sponsored by World Vision. For group and service project information, contact Lauren Wilkie, 708:434-5006. Additional information about the 30 Hour Famine can be found online.

World Vision is a Christian relief and development organization dedicated to helping children and their communities worldwide reach their full potential by tackling the causes of poverty. World Vision serves the world's poor regardless of a person's religion, race, ethnicity, or gender.
