In these difficult times, how do we talk to our children about poverty and hunger in our community, about people whose lives are so different from ours? Local author Amy Carpenter-Leugs has written two children's books to help families see through the eyes of our neighbors. French Toast for Maleek shows us a day in the life of childhood hunger, and how a community can help. Lilliana Grows It Green shows us how a girl with disabilities can do more than people thought. Both books feature loving families and a view from a child's eyes.

Join us for a panel discussion about the issues of hunger and diversity in our community. Led by Amy, the panel will feature experts from United Church Outreach Ministry, The Arc Kent County, and the Disability Network. Come find out how to make these issues more approachable for your children, led by God's love.
