Bread for the World Sunday

Thousands of churches across the country will take action this fall to end hunger in the United States and around the world by celebrating Bread for the World Sunday.

Bread for the World Sunday offers an opportunity to engage your congregation in God's work to end hunger. During a special church service, congregations commit themselves to the fight against hunger and poverty through education, prayer, and worship.

Your celebration of Bread for the World Sunday can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose. The important point is to set aside a time for remembering those in our own country and around the world who struggle to get enough to eat. We also invite you to pray for the ministry of Bread for the World at this crucial time.

This is your chance to join thousands of other Christians across the country as we lift up our voices on behalf of hungry people. Bread for the World Sunday will be celebrated on October 19, 2014, but you may choose to participate on any date this fall. Join us as we celebrate our calling as Jesus' disciples to work for justice for hungry people.
