This special Sunday invites churches to pay attention to the hunger and poverty issues that run throughout West Virginia. Special donations given this day support Hunger Grants supplied by the WVUMC Global Ministries Team.

Hunger Grants are awarded in support of food pantries and other agencies that help the hungry throughout WVUMC. Grants can cover food and food-related items (such as nutrition education, food storage, etc.) but cannot cover administrative costs or utility payments for clients.

The Hunger Grant Fund of the West Virginia Conference of The United Methodist Church is in need of funds. We were not able to grant funds this year to needy food pantries because of lack of funds.

In West Virginia, 242,180 people are facing hunger and of them 68,310 are children, that means that in our state alone 1 in 5 children face hunger each and every day.
