Get Involved

Want to know how you can make a difference through ELCA World Hunger? Here’s how you can get involved.

  • Learn and teach. We each have a role to play in ending hunger and poverty. Throughout the ELCA, people are doing some great work battling hunger and they inspire the creation of ELCA World Hunger resources. A wide variety of educational resources from ELCA World Hunger are here to help both individuals and congregations learn more. Use these lessons, hear the stories of our sisters and brothers from around the world, and learn how daily choices — from prayer to energy consumption — and working together can make a difference.
  • Attend an event. Events offer a great opportunity for education and networking. ELCA World Hunger strives to offer events that enhance and encourage meaningful ministry — from leadership training to farm-based events on the ethics of eating. When we are gathered we have the opportunity to share our best ideas and practices, realizing that we do more when we work together.


Speak out! Together, we achieve things on a scale and scope that we could never do otherwise. When we act as a coordinated network of advocates and reach out to officials on relevant, timely issues, we effectively impact public policies that help people living in poverty.


Share the story. We depend on volunteer ELCA World Hunger Leaders across the ELCA to raise awareness, share the story and promote the mission we are part of through ELCA World Hunger. Individuals, congregations and synods all play unique roles in eradicating poverty and hunger, and we leverage those networked efforts to make a difference. Join thousands of ELCA members by signing up for the e-advocacy network now.


Every year, your gifts make it possible for ELCA World Hunger to respond strategically and help people living with hunger and poverty in more than 50 countries around the world, including the United States.


Make a difference in your community. Through the ELCA World Hunger-funded Domestic Hunger Grants program, we support local, regional and national programs that work to alleviate poverty and hunger. Learn more about how your congregation or organization can apply for support.
