30 Hour Famine

Poverty and hunger are a daily reality for children and families in vulnerable communities today just as they were in Jesus' day.

By choosing to be part of the 30 Hour Famine, you can experience the joy of helping children and families in some of the world's hardest places. A hunger free world really does start with you.
