Prayer expresses faith and hope and moves us toward further action. In prayer we align our hearts with God and His compassionate love for the poor and hungry. Through prayer we also discern, along with God, how to use the resources at our disposal. Prayer reminds us that we are not alone, we depend on God, our earth, and all of humanity to work together to provide daily bread. The Foodgrains Bank has created resources to guide individuals, churches and communities through prayer and worship.

Worship Resource for World Food Day
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) created World Food Day to commemorate its founding in Quebec City, October 16, 1945. The goal of the FAO is to free humanity from hunger and malnutrition, and to effectively manage the global food system. World Food Day events are organized in over 150 countries across the world, making it one of the most celebrated days of the UN calendar. These events promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and help strengthen the link between agriculture and food security.
