Did Jesus really say don't feed those who have nothing to eat?

Feed the Need 2010
Jesus said to have compassion and feed those who have nothing to eat (Mark 8:1-3). The people who came to him for teaching and hope were not those who were chronically hungry. These were families who came out and got hungry while hearing Jesus teach.  It was a meal.  That's what Feed the Need is all about--offering a meal in the name of Jesus with God's love empowered by the Holy Spirit!

How can I get involved with Feed the Need 2011?

You need to bring hope to those who need hope. The economy, your  neighborhood, and your  community need hope. One hunger fact, over 33 million Americans live in homes that experience periods of hunger or food insecurity.  In those homes, 13 million children experience hunger or food insecurity.  As one songwriter aptly reflected,
I do believe that most men live lives of quiet desperation. For despair, optimism is the only practical solution. Hope is practical. Because eliminate that and it's pretty scary. Hope at least gives you the option of living.
Harry Nilsson
