With your help, ELCA World Hunger has worked on hunger issues for more than 40 years, and together, we have made an incredible worldwide impact. However, the rate of global progress against hunger is slowing in many of the world’s poorest communities. And here in the United States, many Americans have been forced to choose between paying for food and other basic necessities. We must not lose ground. There is more work to do here at home and around the world.
This Lent, we have the opportunity to reverse this trend. ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Dyas of Giving is our time to give more–spiritually, intellectually and financially–as we live out God’s call to love and serve our neighbors. With a goal of $2 million by Easter Sunday, March 27, this initiative will enable crucial work to get underway and kick-start ELCA World Hunger’s year-of-emphasis as part of Always Being Made New: The Campaign for the ELCA.
Our congregation has pledged to join in this churchwide effort. THroughtout the season of Lent, we will be hosting various events and presenting opportunities to get involved in the work of ELCA World Hunger. Stay tuned!
