Ending Hunger: What can one person do?

http://www.familycircus.org/html/aquaponics.html

"What is in your/our heart can really have a great impact in the lives of many both at home and worldwide. Having a generous heart does not have a negative impact on us but helps us to have a more enjoyable life (and more friends). When disaster happens, if people have access to food, then life and hope for a better future can be sustained. We’ve seen families suffering from malnutrition due to economic distress, for example sickness of the wage earners, and their children coming to us having not eaten for three days. Then, when we share from what we have, their lives take a turn for the better.

We are doing this task on as large a scale as we are able, due to the thousands of kids and poor families from squatter areas. At the same time, we are working towards using our site as a hands-on teaching classroom for both small and large scale Aquaponics."

From the home page:
"Rarely does it take this long for me to reply, the contributing factor in this delay was primarily computer challenges, besides a wonderfully busy time of ministry, which included a “Surprise” we just sent you a 18 ton container of food..."

OK, it is two people. Two people feeding most of a village and shipping tons of food to other missionaries. Now imagine if every church put an aquaponics system in. (And I assume that some of the food is donated or purchased, but the AP system is a huge part of their effort.)
