One pound fish, very very good; one pound fish, very very cheap, one pound fish. — One Pound Fish Man

FAST from your typical diet today and eat only inexpensive, non-meat foods (but fish is okay).

PRAY for farmers who grow our food, and those who sell it and bring it to us.

GIVE — write a letter to your representative with the help of a template from Bread for the World, a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s leaders to end hunger at home and abroad.

After Lent, tune in to BustedHalo.com every day for our Daily Jolts and MicroChallenges!

    Just a thought, at least in my community, the really cheap food is the “hamburgers” sold from McDonald’s. If I were to stand in solidarity with the poor, I would have to eat the 1$ snack items from their menu. One thing I have noticed is that McDonald’s only thrive in the poor, urban, “ghetto” neighborhoods.
    Also, has there been a question-answer on why fish is ok during Lent, when fish is still the flesh of an animal (aka meat?)
