Global Hunger Relief

GHR (Global Hunger Relief)

is an initiative of Southern Baptists formerly known as the World Hunger Fund.

Global Hunger Sunday is October 13!


When Southern Baptists observe their annual Global Hunger Sunday the second Sunday in October, they will be called to act out the powerful love of Jesus, who the Bible says was “moved with compassion” for people in desperate need. That kind of compassion compels a response, and Baptist Global Response offers multiple ways to get involved. You can discover some of the avenues by clicking on the Updates, Prayer, and Resources tabs.

You also can engage in hunger issues by using the additional suggested resources listed below.

1. Global Hunger Relief

The Global Hunger Relief (GHR) website has some excellent resources for promoting world hunger awareness.


2. World Hunger Event Kit

World Hunger 101 is a two-hour churchwide event that explores the issue of global hunger. Each age-level session plan includes promotion ideas and hunger project ideas.
