Global Hunger Relief

Global Hunger Relief supports projects across North America, like the Good Samaritan Food Bank in North Georgia, who serves those “on the margin” of life. Give on Global Hunger Sunday on October 8 and 100% of every dollar goes directly toward meeting hunger needs.

One in seven people in the U.S. access food banks to help meet their needs. (Hunger in America 2014)

One out of six children—roughly 100 million—in developing countries is underweight. (The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2015)
