Ending World Hunger!

Hunger Resources - Engaging forum, discussion, and advocacy resources on our top education and advocacy priority.

Hunger Volunteer Training & Support Project - Faith-based efforts to alleviate hunger, poverty, and homelessness have been challenged in recent years by the economic downturn. This project aims to help by offering resources, activities, workshops, and mentoring to support program volunteers and strengthen congregation involvement. World Hunger Advocacy

For several decades, ending hunger has been our top legislative priority. During that time, we’ve learned a lot and grown in skill and determination. What is unique this year is that our efforts have a receptive administration. Our advocacy is still urgently needed: Here´s our latest advocacy update.

"Taking Root" is a superb five-part congregation education program on hunger (look under the "Hunger Education" tab). It is available for three different age levels, primary, middle, h.s. each with very different, well conceived activities, visuals, stories, and great graphic look. Several LPF pastors and lay leaders who have used the program in their congregation have raved about its quality, flexibility, and ability to engage young people.
