Officially, it’s Sunday, October 16. But for the Church and CRS supporters, every day is World Food Day.

CRS and its partners are feeding more than 1 million people affected by the drought.

Well drilling in Ethiopia helped thousands of families face this year’s killer drought with little or no need for food assistance.

In Haiti, CRS provided food and supplies to Port-au-Prince the next day. One month after the quake, we’d fed 500,000 Haitians.

In Afghanistan, CRS supporters battle hunger by helping women start businesses.

Through CRS, you bring hope to a world in need by bringing food to the poorest and most vulnerable of our brothers and sisters?

You can help right now.
