Global Hunger Relief


Global Hunger Relief funds projects to combat hunger in North America and around the world.

According to the World Health Organization, after being in steady decline over the past ten years, global hunger is on the rise again. Global war and natural disasters have brought the number of people living in hunger to more than 815 million, approximately 11 percent of the global population. During the month of October, Southern Baptists turn our attention toward global hunger relief.

Have you ever wondered what you can do to help alleviate this crisis?

Pray for those working around the world to prevent hunger and malnutrition.
Pray for those who live with food insecurity.
Pray for rain and for abundant harvests.

Encourage your church to participate in Global Hunger Sunday on October 13, 2019.
100 percent of your donations goes directly toward meeting hunger needs.
