ELCA World Hunger

One in five people in our world today live in extreme poverty, living on less than $1.25 per day. As members of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), we are called to respond. Your gifts to ELCA World Hunger help our church creatively and courageously work toward a world of justice in which all are fed. 

Global network. Local approach. 

Working through Lutheran connections in the United States and nearly 60 other countries around the world, we start by listening to the needs of our neighbors and getting their ideas to help break the cycle of hunger and poverty. Then we work alongside them to make those dreams a reality. 

Your gifts. Your church.
Transforming the world.

From microloans to health clinics, water wells to animal husbandry, your gifts to ELCA World Hunger support innovative solutions that get at the root causes of hunger. And they don’t stop there. We engage Lutherans in advocacy and hunger education to act and speak in ways that can make a difference. Through this comprehensive approach, we address hunger from all angles, both locally and around the world.
