Usually at the conclusion of the festive meal, we take a moment to thank God for the food that we've eaten. But we are unable to think about the food on our table without taking a moment to think about food insecurity, and how it disproportionately affects urban people of color. I'd like to urge each seder participant tonight to go home and make a small donation to help support hungry people in your community. Whether it's inviting a friend over for a meal who would not otherwise be able to eat, or donating non-perishables to a local food pantry, or volunteering at a soup kitchen, or making a donation to an organization that fights hunger.

Hunger is not a queer specific issue, but we say "let all who are hungry, come and eat." So let's make sure that everyone in our community has the ability to eat. If you feel gratitude towards God for this meal, remember that it is human hands that made the food, and human hands that can best distribute food to those who are hungry.
