As people of faith, our calling is clear. Feed the hungry and we will live.
With more than 40 million Americans experiencing food insecurity, we are a nation in crisis. At a time of unrest in our nation and around the world, a time when we need our leaders to come together for the common good, our society is more fragmented than any time since the Civil Rights era, which practically ensures the systemic problems of domestic hunger and poverty will persist.
How can we, as a nation, stand by and our neighbors go hungry? How can the Church?
Coming august 19, 2019
