Food That's Abundant and Safe

The shortage of food is a serious and persistent problem. Attempts at relief range from tries at population control to breeding new and more prolific crops and research into farming the seas. Yet millions of people still suffer from malnutrition and starvation. This condition affects so many that all concerned for mankind can't help wishing to do something. There is something everyone can do. We can give the situation our spiritual attention.

To physical sense, we're dependent on material food. Our health and strength are supposed to relate to its quantity and quality. Man as viewed in Christian Science is, nevertheless, the satisfied reflection of God. Man is entirely spiritual and is sustained by ideas from God. These sustain man because they comprise man; he is the compound expression of God, enfolding every right idea, and with each idea complete and permanent.

Such metaphysical truth can be related to the problem of insufficient, low-quality, or inappropriate food. But how can the connection be made between these facts and suffering mankind?
