Connecting People in Need with People Who Care

Caring for people in need

Do you know about the best kept secret in Southern Baptist Life? It’s the World Hunger Fund. Sunday, October 10, 2010 is World Hunger Day when many churches will collect funds to support hunger needs around the globe. You can find lots of information here or at

Since its inception in 1974, Southern Baptists have given $230,877,650 through the fund to meet hunger needs both at home and abroad. In 2007, more than $5.5 million was given, but as recently as 2003 the total was more than $8.6 million.

Hunger needs have not subsided, however. Nor has God’s love for hungry people diminished. Yet few Southern Baptists are aware of the tremendous ministry their World Hunger Fund has across the world, helping families survive disaster and famine, providing clean water, improving health and nutrition - and all along helping people discover how to have hope and purpose in life.
