We know your church calendar is filling up fast—so don’t wait to start planning your Bread for the World Sunday celebration for October 20 (or another Sunday this fall). This is your chance to join thousands of Christians across the country as we lift up our voices on behalf of hungry people.

Bread for the World Sunday offers an opportunity for your congregation to expand and deepen its commitment to ending hunger through education, prayer, and worship.

Your Bread for the World Sunday can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose, and we have FREE resources, including bulletin inserts, offering envelopes, and a NEW resource kit, that can help you plan your celebration.

The kit includes the following:

  • Step-by-step instructions on how to make your event a success
  • Prayers and a brand-new litany
  • Lectionary study for Luke 18:1-8 by Dr. Greg Carey, professor of New Testament at Lancaster Theological Seminary
  • Reflection by Jeanette Salguero, co-pastor of Lamb’s Church in New York City

Learn more about Bread Sunday and order your FREE resources today!

Additional materials, including hunger facts, PowerPoint slides, children’s activities, and much more, are available for download on our website.
