Every Three Seconds documentary about potential of individuals to end poverty and hunger

The Global Peace Film Festival presents Every Three Seconds, a new documentary about the potential of individuals to end extreme poverty and hunger.  Award-winning Director Daniel Karslake (For the Bible Tells Me So) tells the unforgettable stories of five regular folks - a boy, a college student, a thirty-something and two seniors – whose lives went from ordinary to extraordinary based on one simple decision – to engage. Each chose action over apathy, and in the process, each one has had a significant and lasting impact on two of the most challenging, yet solvable, issues of our time, hunger and extreme poverty. Every Three Seconds is about doing well by doing good – about changing the world and changing your own life in the process.

The film is followed by a Q&A with Daniel Karslake.

Food Packaging Event & Campaign Kickoff

In lieu of a typical campaign kickoff, Salina Area United Way is hosting an event that will help the Salina area fight hunger and food insecurity.

Did you know that 14.5% of Saline County residents are food insecure*? This means that people have a lack of access to enough food for all the members of their household and uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate foods. Salina Area United Way is fighting these statistics by providing a unique opportunity to give back to the community, and celebrate the beginning of 2014 Campaign season!

Salina Area United Way has enlisted the help of a national organization called Outreach that will help over 200 volunteers package 50,000 macaroni and cheese meals in just 2 hours on September 26! Outreach will provide the necessary ingredients, packaging equipment, training, supplies, and certified food safe event coordinators; our job is to bring the volunteers. This event is designed to include people of all ages and backgrounds. Please invite your family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, sports team, civic/community group, religious organization, or anyone else who would want to participate in this unique event! Tasks will differ greatly, so if you have limited mobility or are a heavy lifter there will be a job for you! Please wear close toed shoes, but feel free to dress comfortably and casually.

The cost to attend is $10 per person, which helps pay for the event. All the food you help prepare will stay in the Salina area community. Local organizations with food banks or pantries, or who give food assistance will receive the packaged meals.

Bike Out Hunger - Bridge the Gap

Ride well. Do good. And for some, ride really long...

Bridging the gap means different things to different people, but it's never easy. For a cyclist, it's pedalling harder to catch a breakaway. For kids in low income family units, it's often bridging the gap from Friday's school lunch to Monday's school breakfast.

You can impact their lives. On the heels of the Hunger Summit hosted at Baylor University, Bike Out Hunger is offering a unique experience, a 200 kilometer (125 mile) fully supported (by The Bear Mountain) ride from Waco to Austin. The route is a great, safe, country road experience with stocked stretch points and rolling SAG.

200 kilometer route overview in Mapy My Ride and in Google Maps. The 20, 40, 60 mile routes follow this map to your turnaround point.

Alternate routes include 20-mile40-mile and 60-mile out-and-back from the Methodist Children's Home in Waco as well as a 25-mile meet-up ride at Andice General Store for Austin locals to join and an out-and-back 50-mile meet up ride from Bicycle Sport Shop on Parmer to the Andice General Store and back.

Proceeds from the ride go to feed hungry kids in Waco and Austin.

Basic info:
October 4...yep the day UT hosts BU in football
7 am start at the Methodist Children's Home in Waco; 9 am at Bicycle Sport Shop on Parmer or 11 am in Andice (see below)

Start-point specific info:

Cyclists wishing to ride the full 200k from Waco to Austin will meet at a the Methodist Children's Home in Waco and will ride out at 7 am. Upon arriving at the ending point, Bicycle Sport Shop on Parmer in Austin, we will have showers, snacks, hydration, Mexican food and a finishing party. From there, a chartered motor coach will carry the riders back to the starting point.
Cyclists wanting a shorter distance can take place in the send off route of 20 miles or the intermediate routes of 40 and 60 miles. Those riding out and back from the Methodist Children's Home will have an ending party there as well.

From Austin
Cyclists wishing to ride the full 200k from Waco to Austin have the option of riding the chartered motor coach from the Bicycle Sport Shop on Parmer on Friday evening and staying at the Indigo Hotel at a negotiated rate. The Saturday rides start at 7 am.

For all riding to the to-be-named bike shop, we will have snacks and Mexican food at the ending party.

Special note to all 200k riders: There will be a cut-off time that you will be sagged in to the final ending point for safety reasons. But, those making the full distance will receive a special commemorative item for your achievement. Yeah, trust me, it's a good one.
