As we prepare to enter the season of Lent, we want to invite you to join ELCA World Hunger’s 40 Days of Giving.

For two years, as rates of hunger skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic, the world has seemed overwhelming, like a wilderness. We have seen the number of hungry people around the world rise, watched as food pantries and soup kitchens expanded to serve an ever-growing number of guests, and longed together for God to make a way in this wilderness.

Lent reminds us that we are not alone; God promises to be with us. 40 Days of Giving invites us to share in God’s promise for a future of rest from our labors, a future of wholeness and fullness — a future when all will be fed. This is not an easy journey, but your support for ELCA World Hunger brings transformational change amid the very real challenges confronting us today.

At ELCA.org/40Days, you’ll find these downloadable resources to enrich the life of your congregation and family this season:
  • A daily devotional calendar with ideas for worship, prayer, study, reflection and more.
  • A weekly study guide inviting deep discernment and critical thinking, with inspirational stories about how your gifts to ELCA World Hunger are at work in the world.
  • Additional resources, including a new interactive Action Guide for Congregations with ideas and resources to help activate your congregation in the fight against hunger and poverty with a special focus on the 40 Days of Giving.
We hope these resources enrich your Lenten season and inspire giving to the critical ministry of ELCA World Hunger, an important part of Christ’s call on our church.

Thank you for journeying through the wilderness with us this Lent, toward the future God has promised.
