Fast Sunday

The first Sunday of every month in our Church is "Fast Sunday". We fast, starting after dinner on Saturday night, until dinner on Sunday. We donate to the church the money that we would have spent on food for those two meals. The church then distributes that money to families in our Ward that are in need. During the time that we are fasting, we pray for special needs. What made me want to post about this today? I just heard a statistic on television:
96 billion pounds of food are wasted annually in the US

It strikes me that if we can waste that much, we can surely give more.

I wish that restaurants would start doing smaller portions, because I can guarantee that a lot of waste comes from restaurants. (And who really wants to pay for more than they're going to eat, anyhow?)
