Berkshire Community Church will participate in "Release the Feast," World Vision’s 30 Hour Famine for children in need, from 5 p.m. Friday, March 28, to 7 p.m. Saturday, March 29.

Youth groups throughout Berkshire County including Pittsfield, Richmond and Lanesborough will go without food for 30 hours to raise funds and awareness about global hunger.

In addition to fasting, the youth group will participate in activities such as visiting Berkshire Town Bowling, cleaning the church and learning about the families who benefit from the famine.
