There is neither bread nor water here; we are sick of this unsatisfying food.

Numbers 21:5

The Israelites lose patience with Moses and with God. They may have escaped from Egypt, but they are now out in the wilderness with little to eat or drink.

We can all get irritable when we are hungry. This might be a temporary feeling, soon eased by the next snack or meal. But what about those who struggle to get enough food? How must they feel? How can we help?
