What is it:
We give up food and drink (other than water, or juices if you want) in order to experience a taste of the hunger that many in our world feel every day. You will raise money through asking others to contribute to you for doing the 30 Hour Famine. The money raised goes to World Vision, which runs the 30 Hour Famine.

How’s it work:
We’re participating in the 30 Hour Famine on Jan. 22-23rd. You’ll stop eating after lunch on Friday, then come to EBC around 5:00pm. Bring a sleeping back and a change of clothes for tomorrow. We’ll go out and do service projects on Saturday morning. We’ll spend tons of time together hanging out, watch a few movies, and all while learning about world hunger and about World Vision’s mission and how that relates to our faith in Christ. At 7:00 (the 30 hour mark) we’ll eat dinner together and you’re free to get picked up between 7:30-8:00pm on Saturday. If you need to come & go, just let me know and we’ll work it out ahead of time.
