Covenant Churches

Your congregation or faith community can become more deeply involved in justice and hunger issues through Bread for the World by becoming a Covenant Church. Covenant Churches make an annual commitment to:

  • observe Bread for the World Sunday annually and integrate hunger concerns in prayer, worship, and stewardship and educational activities.
  • participate in Bread for the World’s annual Offering of Letters and engage in advocacy on other legislation in Congress.
  • make an annual financial contribution to Bread for the World, support local anti-hunger efforts and your denomination’s hunger program, and encourage members of your congregation to join Bread for the World.

In response to this commitment, Bread for the World offers additional resources and encouragement to Covenant Churches. Four members of your congregation are also eligible to receive free Bread for the World memberships. To learn more, email, or call 800/822-7323.
