Feeding the World from My Table: Thoughts from Aimée Wimbush-Bourque

Feeding the World from My Table: Thoughts from Aimée Wimbush-Bourque

“We cannot all do great things. But we can do small things with great love.” ~ Mother Teresa. As far back as I can remember, I’ve wanted to feed people. From elaborate catering events to backyard barbecues, casual church suppers to my own family table, I’ve always felt the desire to serve. When I was still a child, my mother taught me how to coax yeast to bloom on frigid Yukon mornings and how to knead bread dough on our expansive wooden table. Before my age reached double digits, I was preparing the daily loaf for the family, a sure...

Celebrate It All: Rain, Cookies, & HFQ Vol. 2!

Celebrate It All: Rain, Cookies, & HFQ Vol. 2!

By Jillian Zieske, World Vision’s HungerFree Team As a child, my mom and I lived in Seattle, Washington- an infamously grey and rainy city. When it wasn’t pouring rain, we were walking around the lake or to a coffee shop. But my favorite memories were inside when it was raining, because rainy days were for baking cookies.

Made by Hand, Made to Empower - HungerFree Quarterly

By Jillian Zieske, World Vision’s HungerFree Team After months of designing patterns, picking materials, and learning about empowerment programs, I went to Kenya in July and met the with companies and artisans making items for HungerFree Quarterly Volume I. Deadlines were tough and resources limited, but we decided early on that we would not skimp on choosing the absolute best socially empowering companies to collaborate with. We visited each workplace and it was like watching conductors compose a masterpiece. The attention to detail and the hope felt in each workspace, caused me to grin ear to ear, while also holding back...

When Tiny Obsessions Change the World

When Tiny Obsessions Change the World

By James Pedrick, World Vision’s HungerFree Team I have a confession: I love subscription boxes! For one thing, it’s nice to get something in the mail that isn’t a bill or junk mail. But even more so, I love the anticipation – opening up my box to see what curated surprise someone had in store for me and my tribe. Subscription boxes are very popular right now. They cater to the little things we are obsessed with – whether it be food, fashion or superheroes (shout out to all you fellow Marvel fans out there!) For my wife’s birthday, I...
