For I was hungry and you gave me food.
The Hunger Committee raises awareness of global and domestic hunger issues and encourages congregations in ministries responding to the needs of hungry people around the corner and around world.
Through our Synod’s e-letter, the committee’s newsletter, Bread and Justice, and a network of congregational hunger contacts, the committee highlights the relief, development, advocacy, and education work of ELCA World Hunger, the Lutheran World Federation, Bread for the World, and Lutheran World Relief. We publicize what synod congregations and ministries are doing to fight hunger and we offer ideas to those who want to become more involved, especially by supporting the work of ELCA World Hunger.
The committee’s newsletter, Bread and Justice, is published in the spring and fall. Learn about the issues. See how congregations are fighting hunger. Explore resources. Be a hunger fighter! Read the current issue.
