Child 31- The Story of Mary's Meals

From the Creators of "Human Experience", Grass Roots Films Presents "Child 31":

"The immediate hope is surviving."

 "It could have been any one of us..."  "Mary's Meals is an international movement that sets up school feeding projects in communities where poverty and hunger prevent children from gaining an education.

Mary's Meals is a simple idea that works - by providing a daily meal in a place of education, chronically poor children are attracted to the classroom where they can gain a basic education that provides an escape route from poverty.

Over 800,000 children receive Mary's Meals every school day. The average cost to feed a child for a whole school year is £10.70 / €12.40 / $16.80."

Coffee Talk

Today my thoughts lie
Deep in Coffee Talk
And holistic friendship-
Pulling me to memories
Of Africa and Peace Corps
And the selfless-endeavor
I came to crave: Tsavorite.

Two years time feels lifted
From this ever-evolving life and love,
Yet it keeps me close
As friends remain friends...
No notice needed.

"The Vegan's 100 Food List"

I just finished the documentary "Vegucated" (2010) this morning (see:, and have decided to start exploring veganism for the next 7 days.

I found a food list to start from a website that does not seem to be particularly research-based, but sets the pace as far as its counterparts are concerned. As much as I have loved learning about nutrition in the last few years the, "Animal Liberation Front", is an entirely different ball game. Let's see what we can find.
