Global Food Week of Action & World Food Day

Faith Action Network is co-sponsoring with Presbyterian (PCUSA) Hunger Program:

Global Food Week of Action & World Food Day 

October 15-22, 2017

We are called to work for a world where everyone has sufficient, healthy, and culturally appropriate food, where those who produce and prepare the food are fairly compensated and respected. There are many good works and coalitions already active across our state to advance anti-hunger and nutrition programs, anti-poverty initiatives, food justice and food sovereignty. We invite you to engage in education and action on one or more of these days as they fit your faith community or organization.

The suggested themes for each day offer resources and invite participation—pick one or many, convene a group, give a sermon or talk, share them on social media. And let us know if there’s something you are doing that we can celebrate!

Other resources for faith communities:
