Britain’s Telegraph newspaper has reported that due to price increases, more than 80% of Japanese household have been buying bulk or less expensive brands. In the United States, retailers Sam’s Club and Costco applied restrictions on bulk purchases of rice. Local food banks have reported a 20-25% increase in the numbers of people seeking help, even those who currently hold jobs. Atlanta Community Food Bank Executive Director Bill Bolling said, “People are literally having to decide whether to pay the doctor bill or to buy food, to pay for heating bill or to buy food.”

We pray for Heaven’s blessing in providing plentiful food and health security for all Earth’s inhabitants as we strive to curb climate change and re-balance our fragile biosphere.
