"For I was hungry and you gave Me something to eat ... "
Matthew 25:35

Hunger is no respecter of geography or ethnic group. It can be felt in an apartment in Eastern Europe, a cardboard shack in Central America, a tent in the Sahara, or a house in Kentucky.

Southern Baptist missionaries and volunteers are offering nourishment for the body and soul. And every Southern Baptist can have a part in those ministries through gifts to the Global Hunger Relief offering.

Donate the Difference

Small sacrifices and simple swaps can make a BIG difference!

  • A cup of fancy coffee can cost $11 a week, but home-brewed joe can be had for around a dollar. The difference? $10
  • A meal out for a family of four can easily top $50, but a home-cooked meal for the same family can cost as little as $15. The difference? $35
  • A night out at the movies for a family of four can easily top $75, but an evening at home with a DVD can cost well under $10. The difference? $65

Consider forgoing some of your usual luxuries and donating the difference to the World Hunger Fund.

If you are a member of a Southern Baptist church, make your Global Hunger Relief gift by placing it in the offering plate at your church with "Global Hunger Relief" on your check or offering envelope. Or you can give directly by clicking the button below:

100% of all donations to Global Hunger Relief go to feeding hungry people; not a dime goes to administrative costs.

The need for hunger relief is huge. One out of every six people in the world is undernourished; one out of every six people in the United States don't get enough food to be healthy. Poverty among children is on the rise, and 18.4 percent of Kentucky's children live in poverty.

The eternal impact of Global Hunger Relief is tremendous. In Kentucky alone, 192 people professed faith in Jesus Christ last year as a direct result of hunger relief ministries.
