Description

Based on an ancient story about hunger and sharing, this animated video is part of Caritas’ “One Human Family, Food for All” campaign. The “allegory of the spoons” teaches us that when we struggle to feed only ourselves, everyone goes hungry. But when we focus on our neighbour’s hunger, we discover there are ways to feed everyone. Around the world, Caritas helps people so that they can feed their families. Learn more about our anti-hunger work at facebook.com/CaritasFoodforAll.
