LCC National Youth Gathering

What a weekend!! From July 1-5, I had the privilege of attending the Lutheran Church-Canada National Youth Gathering in Edmonton. Youth and leaders from LCC churches across Canada stopped by the CLWR display table to chat, browse fair trade items, and to play the famous “Meal or no Meal” game – an introduction to the experience of farmers in developing countries and the challenge of food insecurity. From year to year, season to season, farmers in developing countries face obstacles to food security in their communities as a result of drought, floods, market fluctuation, and other factors beyond their control. Participants gained a sense of these challenges and heard what CLWR is doing to address food security through its projects. Students also had the chance to connect with representatives of many other great Lutheran organizations from across the country. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our display! It was a pleasure connecting with you!!
