Churches Work to Confront Hunger

Churches Work to Confront Hunger

Printer-friendly version

Nearly 20 million people in the United States have trouble putting food on the table, according to Feeding America, but local churches around the country have risen to meet this disparity. Twenty-two percent of families have received food from church pantries, according to a survey by Lifeway Research. People from different races, genders, and ages report that, regardless of their church attendance, they have looked to a church for food in times of need. Lifeway Research’s Vice President says, “There is an abundance of food in the U.S., but plenty of people still go hungry…. Many churches respond by faithfully following the biblical principle of being open handed to the poor and needy by maintaining well-stocked food pantries to share.”
