November 2023 Second Mile Giving Partner
Updated: Nov 29
In November, our Second Mile Giving Partner is ELCA World Hunger.
Last year, we noted that there is a number out there that doesn’t seem to
improve ... about 821 million people are hungry (around 11% of the world’s population).
It is continuing. And in the United States alone, more than 40 million people are unsure
where their next meal might come from.
An irony about this is that a number of food and hunger organizations are sure
that the earth can produce enough food for everyone! ELCA World Hunger, our Second
Mile Giving ministry partner for the month of November, is one of them. Their approach
is to start with conversations and listening to communities in need. They know best.
And then ELCA starts working with ELCA congregations, global companion churches,
the Lutheran world Federation and other partners like Bread For the World, Church
World Service, Lutheran World Relief, etc. to provide relief and assistance, and make
connections will reverse all of this.
Through this comprehensive approach, domestically and globally, ELCA World
Hunger is striving to end Hunger and poverty in the USA and throughout the world.
ELCA World Hunger is supporting projects in 34 US states and territories, and 63
countries. Our Social Ministry Team thanks the members and friends of All Saints
Lutheran for their support of the Second Mile Giving Program and asks for your
continued support for our Ministry Partner in November, ELCA World Hunger.
Please join in supporting this vital global ministry.
