Bread for the World Sunday
Urge Nutrition Investments Amid Coronavirus
Join us on Bread for the World Sunday, October 11, to advocate to Urge Nutrition Investments Amid Coronavirus.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) is a hunger crisis. Fifty-four million Americans are estimated to become food insecure by the end of the year, according to Feeding America. The U.N. World Food Programme reports that the number of people globally facing a hunger crisis could double to 265 million.
Access to nutrition is vital in responding to COVID-19. Bread members are urging Congress to prioritize investing in nutrition in the stimulus bill.
World Homeless Weekend October 10-11
Every year in October, cities across the globe observe World Homeless Day. Its purpose is to draw attention to the needs of people experiencing homelessness and provide opportunities for communities to get involved in responding to to this humanitarian issue.
Christ the King Church, as a member of the Council of Congregations of SEARCH Homeless Services, invites our members and friends to join on Sunday, October 11 in prayer, awareness raising, and advocacy for some of the most marginalized and vulnerable members of our city.
Houston has been a national leader in reducing homelessness since its implementation of The Way Home in 2011; we’ve has been able to reduce our homeless population by over 54%. However, we do not yet know the full impact that Covid-19 may have on homelessness in our community and country. We join with people of all faith expressions in praying for solutions that make homelessness “rare, brief, and non-recurring.”
