Global Hunger Crisis
In the past couple years, we witnessed great progress in the battle against hunger. People were getting on the first rung of the ladder - making their way out of poverty. Yet, the rising cost of fuel and food is having a tragic impact on some of the world's most vulnerable people It's tough to process a set back of these dimensions. In many ways, this report provides a greater sense of urgency in our work. We have seen progress. We know it can be done. Read more about the current crisis.
I've spoken with a number of Bread for the World members in the past month about the global food crisis. I've asked them, "What are your churches doing in response to the global hunger crisis?" and I'm encouraged by their response. Many communities are increasing their contributions to development projects around the world. Others have responded to the immediate needs of their community by opening up the church food pantry more often. This fall, some churches will organize an Offering of Letters and communicate their concerns to their members of congress.
What is your church doing to respond? How can we support you in your advocacy efforts?
