Millions of people go hungry every night, and – if you’ve ever been hungry – you know that it’s nearly impossible to focus on anything else; it’s even hard to go to sleep.
Globally, there’s a shortage of available food. Nationally, there’s a distribution problem, and it’s exasperated by an overproduction of high calorie, low nutrition food.
The food system, here and abroad, must be fixed.
Catholic Social Teaching calls us to not only understand and deepen our faith but also to live our faith. Whether through advocacy, education, faith sharing, or public action, we all must practice our faith in our every word and deed. As James 2:17 says, “Faith without works is dead.” Please check back often to our Action Center for various ways that you and your community can speak out with compassion and solidarity for justice and peace.
