Churches Week on Action on Food

The global Churches Week of Action on Food (October 11-18) is an opportunity for Christians and others around the world to act together for food justice and food sovereignty. It is a special time to raise awareness about farming approaches that help individuals and communities develop resiliency and combat poverty. We are called also to examine our food choices and call for policy changes that will ensure the right to food for everyone.

Global Food Week of Action includes World Food Day (Oct. 16) as well as the International Day for Rural Women (Oct. 15) and the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty (Oct. 17). Learn more.
