Rosita Jackson, a fourth grade teacher in Baltimore, has participated in Operation Rice Bowl for several years, using the opportunity to teach her students about far-flung places like Ethiopia and Bolivia, turning the program into an important geography lesson all at the same time. The enthusiasm of her students to learn about CRS beneficiaries and their way of lives is a great reminder of how important it is to learn about our global neighbors. And ORB offers learning and prayer resources for all ages and situations. Whether cooking the meals together as a family and praying that our brothers and sisters will have enough to eat, to participating in ORB as a parish, Operation Rice Bowl is a multi-faceted program enabling everyone to get involved in their own way.
