On Tuesday, December 10th, CBF joined CBF-partner Bread For The World, the Catholic Church, and other faith groups in prayer to end world hunger. Pope Francis, in conjunction with Caritas Internationalis, issued a worldwide ‘wave of prayer’ against world hunger that began at noon on Tuesday in the South Pacific island of Samoa.
CBF is continuing to emphasize hunger through the CBFblog this week with "At The Table - Baptist Fight Hunger."
Each day this week, we will post three different stories about hunger ministries in more than eight states. Be sure to check back throughout the week to read these thought-provoking stories written by pastors, lay leaders, ministry partners and field personnel in the Fellowship.
The title of this blog series was also partly inspired by the highly recommended documentary A Place at the Table. Additionally, be sure to check out Bread For The World's 2014 Hunger Report "Ending Hunger In America" which urges President Obama and Congress to lead the country in setting a goal to end hunger by 2030, and it offers a four-part plan to accomplish this:
- A jobs agenda
- A stronger safety net,
- Human capital development
- Public-private partnerships to support innovative community-led initiatives against hunger.
