Six years ago Gary Gunderson and Andy Loving set up shop in Decatur, Georgia's Oakhurst Baptist Church and put together the first issue of a newsletter devoted to calling attention to the problem of world hunger. Since then, Seeds [now Seeds Publishers] has grown into a bi-monthly magazine, which informs its 3,300 subscribers about the plight of under- and malnourished people in rural and inner city areas of America and in other countries.

The goal of the publication — which recently won a World Hunger Media Award for an edition that underscored the role of women in feeding the earth's people — has been to present information that could lead to practical solutions. Articles have featured such topics as how to start food co-ops and how to promote political action on the local and national levels (indeed, the magazine keeps a close watch on how our country's legislators vote on hunger-related issues).
