Abstract: This paper explores the Filipino food culture, Jewish-Christian faith tradition, and world situationer on hunger. It affirms the root of the celebration of the Eucharist as the Lord's Supper in the Old Testament Passover, which celebrates Israel's liberation from slavery and the newfound freedom to build a just and humane society. Echoes of the prophetic tradition are heard in Jesus' proclamation of the Kingdom of God and his 'Meal Ministry, especially in the Lukan Gospel. As Guest-Host-Servant, Jesus preached of the Kingdom of God as a 'Banquet for All'. The believers are thus empowered to be passionate in following the One who calls them to be guest-host-servant, too, as they work at all levels and in all manners in bringing about the United Nations' Millenium Development Goal of reducing world hunger by half by 2015.
