The Central States Hunger Team is re-energizing and would love to network with you about your hunger-related ministry. Consider joining us as we expand our work to:


  • support hunger ministries across the Synod

  • provide education about hunger and related issues contributing to food insecurity

  • advocate for food security policies

  • celebrate the amazing work of ELCA World Hunger over the past 50 Years!

The CSS Hunger Team also reviews Domestic Hunger grants (DHG) annually from congregations and organizations within the CSS before they are submitted to ELCA World Hunger for consideration. Our team is available for consultation with applicants as they consider submitting a DHG for their ministry.

We invite YOU to drop us a note about your hunger-related ministry, we may even profile it in an upcoming Synod newsletter. Let’s work together as we strive for a world where all are fed.
