budget and faith
I am proud of our church which donates 2 tons of food each year to the Lutheran Social Services of Alaska foodbank. Under the current budget cut, which has resulted in a 36.7% cut in federal food assistance to local food banks we would need to increase that to 12 tons to make up the difference. I am not sure we can do that. Under the Ryan budget just passed by the house we would need to increase that to 32 tons to make up the difference. As people of faith, what should our response be to the current budget discussion?
