World Food Day Worship Resources:
And God saw that it was good
On World Food Day, October 16, Canadian Foodgrains Bank invites you and your church community to pray, give, and advocate for an end to global hunger.
World Food Day was founded by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations in Quebec City in 1945. It is observed in more than 150 countries as a way to raise awareness about hunger.
Responding to Hunger and Climate Change
Pray – Use And God Saw That It Was Good, a worship service including prayers, suggested songs, a children’s feature, and other elements to help you focus your worship on the issue of hunger and climate change. Use any of our other worship resources on Creation Care.
Give – make a donation to the Climate Fund, which supports conservation agriculture programming as part of a response to climate change.
Advocate – participate in the Harvest of Letters. Write a personal letter to your Member of Parliament, asking the Canadian government to make a new commitment to support adaptation to climate change in developing countries.
