Following the 2018 event, Christine Clark shared, "I loved The Global Food Experience so much. It was really impactful visually, emotionally, spiritually, and physically. We were amazed at how all of that was drawn together and it really illustrated what Outside the Bowl is working on around the world. The video was great and the panel discussion was interesting. We had some great conversations at dinner with our table mates and on the way home with our family."

SUMMER MEAL SPECIAL: HAITI NEEDS YOUR HELP!
Providing encouragement and support to OTB Super Kitchens around the world keeps us connected to international news. We celebrate the successes and pray for the struggles. 2019 has been a tough year for Haiti. The island nation is highly dependent on imports. Instability in Venezuela has had a ripple effect on fuel for the Caribbean causing prices to increase. As fuel costs have risen, the cost of food and other amenities have gone up as well. Inflation has risen 17 percent (learn more in this article from TIME Magazine).
OTB has standing contracts with existing ministry partners which have not yet been adjusted to reflect the price increase. This summer, we are asking for help in alleviating some of the strain on our kitchens as OTB offsets meal costs.
Learn more here and consider giving $5, $25, or $50 today!

OTB & CLUB DUST IN TECATE
OTB meals are tools for ministry. They fuel bodies to function well. They bring people together around the table. And they nourish hearts for conversations. OTB has been partnering with an organization called Club Dust for many years now. Over the past 39 years, teams traveling with Club Dust to Mexico have built more than 1,000 homes. In June, 150 people tackled building eight homes in the hills outside of Tecate. In their trip summary email, they share:
"Lunch was brought to us from a local charity called Outside the Bowl. We enjoy supporting them and their simple, good meals provided us with more than enough food. We were able to share with the neighborhood kids and moms as well as Gracia del Calvario church when they had evening programs."
The families receiving the homes join in the building project. Many of them are new to the area and have to make the hard decision of spending their limited income on food and taking care of basic needs that arise or building a home. Club Dust shares, "The homes we build provide a huge help in ensuring they are able to stay dry and warm in even the worst of rainstorms and weather. The homes also provide a sense of security and safety that goes towards building a sense of trust and community."
Outside the Bowl is honored to partner with ministries who are tangibly making a difference in the lives of many around the world.
Thank you for partnering with Outside the Bowl to feed the hungry ... body and soul!
