Truly ending hunger means changing its systems. The end of hunger is within our grasp, but hunger cannot be ended without our government playing its part. Hunger advocates make a major difference by helping our elected officials understand how policies and priorities can help end hunger. In this course we’ll explore the Biblical basis for advocacy by Christians.
