While she knows the statistics regarding hunger, and could easily cite them if needed, Joye Jones says it isn’t about the percentages, or the numbers.
“Every hunger statistic is a person, it’s a meal, it’s a family,” Jones said. “I can tell you a few (statistics) but remember, that they are people, they are individuals and they are families.”
Jones discussed how the average person can help fight the increasing hunger problem in our country, and in our community, during a service of the Pocatello Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on Sunday. The church, located at 309 N. Garfield Ave., asked Jones to speak as part of its observation of Bread for the World Sunday.
