Feeding the World From A Garden Shed

If we can conquer space, we can conquer childhood hunger. — Buzz Aldrin

Good News of the Day:
The corrugated tin hut crouching in the undergrowth, dwarfed by dripping firs, looks like a wartime relic nobody could be bothered to clear away … a sign reading “Mary’s Meals” has been stuck above the doorway. To Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, his father’s shed in Dalmally, Argyll, has acquired a talismanic significance. It’s where he stockpiled food and clothes for Bosnian refugees in the 1990s — an amateurish humanitarian mission that eventually led him to sell his house, give up his job and concentrate on the much bigger project of feeding poor children in developing countries. Today his efforts provide over 550,000 children with a daily life-saving meal. http://www.dailygood.org/more.php?n=4734
