Pepperdine students fight hunger


This June, five Pepperdine University students will be traveling in a 31-foot motor home from Malibu to Nashville, Tenn. speaking along the way about their nonprofit organization, Lifebread, Inc. on what they are calling the “Share the Bread Tour”.

“Lifebread is dedicated not simply to giving a man a fish, but teaching him how to fish and even giving him the pole,” the group said in a recent press release. Their goal is to fight the physical hunger through food-based ministry. Members of the “Share the Bread Tour” will be at nearby Conejo Valley Church of Christ June 6 speaking about their mission.

One of these five students, Dusty Breeding, the founder of Lifebread, will be taking his eighth trip to East Africa this July with a 10-student team that will be building Lifebread’s eighth, ninth, and tenth ovens in Uganda. The team will also travel to Kenya to teach ongoing bakery classes using the ovens Lifebread built last summer at an orphanage for street children.
