40 Days of Hunger ELCA Lenten Resources

Join the journey!

Nearly a quarter of the world’s population lives on less than $2 a day. This Lent, ELCA World Hunger invites you to reflect, give and pray for our neighbors around the world that face this harsh reality.

During this time, we invite your congregation to dedicate a special offering or fundraiser of your choice to support ELCA World Hunger and engage in deeper dialogue and prayer on issues related to hunger and poverty with special focus on Martin Luther in this 500th Reformation anniversary year.
