Hunger Action Ministry
Our Hunger Action Ministry Mission:
Awareness: Educate the Casa community around regional hunger issues through movies, speakers and discussion. In Arizona, 1 in 4 children, 1 in 5 adults, and 1 in 7 seniors are food insecure.
Advocacy: Support the reauthorization of the Child Nutrition Act in Congress and other state and national legislation affecting food security.
Action: Organize service projects at community food banks and soup kitchens. Promote individual volunteering efforts.
Hunger Action Ministry, meets on the 2nd Thursday of the month at 6 p.m. Here’s a calendar of our meetings and events. Look for information about service and educational or advocacy events in the Casa Bulletin.
We educate using educational movies, such as A Place at the Table, The Faces of America’s Hungry and Hunger Hits Home, as well as speakers from such local organizations that work to combat hunger (like St Mary’s Food Bank and the Association of Arizona Food Banks) as vehicles for awareness around hunger issues. We participate in local or national advocacy.
