One Human Family, Food for All

Image

The Franciscan Action Network helped launch Caritas Internationalis’ campaign “One Human Family, Food for All” on December 10, 2013.  The Wave of Prayer was just the beginning.  The campaign is intended to raise awareness and help change policy to dramatically reduce hunger in every community in the world.  Caritas staff are working to include a proposal for the 2014 United Nations General Assembly to produce a resolution for member nations to eliminate hunger by 2025.

The two U.S. members of Caritas Internationalis, Catholic Charities USA and Catholic Relief Services, will continue to provide suggestions for how we can continue to keep the fire burning for this lofty goal.  Through individual and common prayer, education, adoption of practical life style choices and activities, and legislative advocacy, we believe that hunger can be reduced in our communities.  Catholic Charities USA has produced two resources for the campaign, a working bibliography of articles, books/reports, Websites, and videos and a menu of choices for personal action for advocates to consider.  For more information about the campaign, please contact Kathy Brown, Catholic Charities USA at kbrown@catholiccharitiesusa.org.
