Bread For the World, Special Collection of Food during Worship, Sunday October 20
Bread for the World Sunday
is an opportunity for you to join
thousands of other Christians in God’s work to end hunger. Through education, prayer, and worship, you can commit yourself to the fight against hunger and poverty in our country and around the world. Despite tremendous progress in recent decades against worldwide hunger and poverty, nearly 16,000 children die every day from hunger-related causes. In our own richly blessed country, one in five children lives in a family that struggles to put food on the table.

But we have the knowledge and resources to end widespread hunger. Churches have already led the way in providing food here in the United States and in helping farmers in Africa grow more food. Now our nation’s decision makers must also change the policies and conditions that allow hunger to persist. Today and in the weeks ahead, you can turn your faith into action when you
• pray for all those who struggle with hunger, poverty, and disease;
• learn more about the causes of and solutions to hunger;
• use your time and financial resources to support local and international
efforts that provide food for hungry people; and
• speak up for hungry people by signing the petition to the president on
the reverse side, asking him to set a goal and work with Congress on a
plan to end hunger in the United States and abroad.
Trusting in the promise of new life, we can be God’s feet and
in the world—creating new hope and opportunity for hungry people.hands
