The World Council of Churches invites a Churches’ Week of Action on Food, from 13-20 October 2019.

An annual week-long global campaign initiated by the WCC-Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance, the Churches’ Week of Action on Food invites the global ecumenical movement and organisations, community-based organisations and faith-based organisations to act collectively for food-justice.

For the 2019 Week of Action, the World Methodist Council and the World Council of Churches - Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance have prepared a resource package of daily reflections (pdf), as well as liturgical material (pdf).
