Global Hunger Relief

GHR (Global Hunger Relief) is an initiative of Southern Baptists formerly known as the World Hunger Fund.

Global Hunger Sunday is October 14!

When Southern Baptists observe their annual Global Hunger Sunday the second Sunday in October, they will be called to act out the powerful love of Jesus, who the Bible says was “moved with compassion” for people in desperate need. That kind of compassion compels a response, and Baptist Global Response offers multiple ways to get involved. You can discover some of the avenues by clicking on the Updates, Prayer, and Resources tabs.

You also can engage hunger issues by using the additional suggested resources listed below.

1. The Global Hunger Relief (GHR) website has some excellent resources for promoting world hunger awareness. You can visit their site at:

2. World Hunger 101 is a two-hour churchwide event that explores the issue of global hunger. Each age-level session plan includes promotion ideas and hunger project ideas. World Hunger 101 is available for download at, where you also can find the popular World Hunger Bread Bank.

3. The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission‘s website,, provides topical articles on biblical directives for combating hunger and poverty and how to begin a hunger ministry.

4. Domestic hunger issues are important too. You can find an excellent array of resources on combating hunger in North America at

Finally, if you would like to request a speaker for your group’s global hunger event or for a global hunger focused church service, please contact us at  We will do our best to accommodate your request.
