Presbyterian Hunger Program

presby hunger program logoIn the Common Affirmation of Global Hunger (adopted in 1979 and amended in 1991), the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) committed itself to address the "crisis of world hunger" in the closing years of the twentieth century.

It affirmed hunger action as a "program priority" and prescribed a program with five components:

  • Direct Food Relief
  • Development Assistance
  • Influencing Public Policy
  • Life-style Integrity
  • Education and Interpretation
