The Big Pancake Parties arranged by CUF have so far helped hundreds of people access food and support nationwide. It really is a great way for groups of all shapes and sizes to make a difference. We as Christians have a remit to help feed the poor – as Jesus said: “For I was hungry, and you gave me something to eat” (Matthew 25:35). I’m not sure he was talking about pancakes but it’s possible!
