The ELCA is inviting you to their World Hunger’s Global Farm Challenge to help our neighbors who are facing threats of hunger and poverty around the world

"Ending hunger isn’t just about food. It’s about access, it’s about justice... The world produces more than enough food for every person, but the number of people experiencing hunger is growing... The very people whose hard work and ingenuity provide the world’s food all too often struggle to feed themselves and their families."
