Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Advocacy

Poverty and Hunger

Every day, Episcopalians address issues of poverty and hunger alleviation in multiple ways. It may be through Jubilee Ministries, advocacy for more Food Stamps or for Millennium Development Goal #1 – eradicate extreme poverty and hunger globally. Individuals, parishes, and dioceses use their voices against the injustices that result in poverty and hunger, while continuing to serve the poor and the vulnerable. Will you help end these devestating problems?
