Starve Wars IV

In the face of 3 billion people around the world facing hunger and poverty each day, Pope Francis reminds us, “The words of Our Lord call to us today, telling us not to turn away, indifferent, when we know our neighbor is hungry.” Turning those words into action, we once again kicked off the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s Eucharistic Congress with a Friday morning meal packing event.

Bishop Bernard Shlesinger joined us for a special celebration of military service at our 9:00 a.m. packing session and we welcomed over 50 people living with disabilities to our second session. Over 500 people packed 85,000 meals over the course of three hours.

STARVE WARS! is a collaborative effort between the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s Justice and Peace Ministries, Catholic Relief Services, Helping Hands, and the people of the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
