Hunger & Poverty Awareness

Jul 14, 2017 6:00pm

Local Churches Band Together to Raise Awareness of Hunger & Poverty

Burlington, IA: First Christian Church, Bethany Evangelical Lutheran Church, and First United Methodist Church, all of Burlington, are partnering to help awaken awareness about the problem of systemic poverty around the world and raise funds to support Foods Resource Bank by putting on a Hunger Dinner, an interactive and memorable experience.

The Hunger Dinner will take place at the LOFT in downtown Burlington at 6:00pm on Friday, July 14th. Upon arrival to the Hunger Dinner, guests will draw tickets at random that assign each to a specific population represented in the world — based on the latest statistics about global poverty. Each group will have a different experience and type of meal. An emcee will lead those of us gathered through an exercise surrounding the experience including time for stories, sharing, reflection, and an opportunity to take action.

If you feel called to help people around the world, but don’t know where to start, this is the perfect place to begin. Tickets are $5 for the evening. For more information or to purchase tickets, contact Rev. Will Ryan, Associate Pastor at First Christian Church, at 319-754-7140.

About Foods Resource Bank: Headquartered in Western Springs, IL, Foods Resource Bank (FRB) was founded in 1999 as a Christian response to ending world hunger through sustainable agriculture and grassroots community involvement. FRB partners with more than 26 overseas organizations to help smallholder farmers in developing countries grow their own food. Across the U.S., FRB engages people to help raise funding and awareness for these agriculture development projects. Thousands of volunteers are involved including churches, community groups, and U.S. farmers. Last year, FRB raised $3.2 million to support 56 programs overseas. These programs helped improve the nutrition, food security, and livelihood of almost 350,000 people living in the poorest regions of the world. FRB’s overseas programs are administered regardless of race, gender, belief, nationality, ethnic origin, or political persuasion. For more information, go to: foodsresoucebank.org
