World Food Day is a day of action against hunger. On Sunday, Oct. 16, people around the world will come together to declare their commitment to eradicate hunger in our lifetime. Because, when it comes to hunger, the only acceptable number in the world is zero.

Join people from around the world to mark World Food Day as a special occasion to take action, learn more and join together to fight hunger. Consider taking a special offering for ELCA World Hunger in your congregation and support our church’s work in sustainable solutions that get at the root causes of hunger and poverty.
