HUNGER IN THE TIME OF COVID-19: Life for Today and Hope for Tomorrow 

September 24 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm PDT

HUNGER IN THE TIME OF COVID-19: Life for Today and Hope for Tomorrow
Thursday, September 24, 5pm via Zoom
Rick Steves, guidebook author and travel TV host, ELCA Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton, and Bishop Shelley Bryan Wee invite you to a virtual benefit – the first of its kind – for ELCA World Hunger. Our goal is to raise $250,000 to confront hunger in the time of COVID-19. We are in a historic moment – a once-in-a-century pandemic, facing a global change in hunger that is unlike anything we have seen in our lifetimes. Domestically and internationally, hunger is increasing at alarming rates. At this event, you will learn about the unique ways ELCA World Hunger is responding. Our hosts will also discuss the ongoing root causes of hunger and poverty addressed in Rick Steves’ recent special “Hunger and Hope: Lessons From Ethiopia and Guatemala.” And, you will hear from ELCA World Hunger partners on the front lines of the current hunger crisis, who will tell you first-hand how your gifts make a difference. We are called by God to share hope in this time of hopelessness. Join us to face this global hunger crisis head-on, and continue to move toward a just world where all are fed. REGISTER to attend HERE.
