USCCB joins international anti-hunger campaign

Catholic World News - December 12, 2013

Two committees of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops have joined “One Human Family, Food for All,” an anti-hunger campaign sponsored by Caritas Internationalis and endorsed by Pope Francis.

“The bishops of the United States stand with Pope Francis in his call to end world hunger,” said Bishop Richard Pates and Archbishop Thomas Wenski of Miami, who chair the Committee on International Justice and Peace and the Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development.

“Since his election, Pope Francis has challenged Catholics and all people to go beyond the boundaries of their own lives and encounter the poor and marginalized,” they added. “As legislators in Washington deliberate how to allocate budget resources to the many people who are hungry, both in our country and around the world, this campaign gives all of us an opportunity to turn awareness into action.”
