ELCA World Hunger representative, Mikka McCracken, will be on hand at Lutheran Day on the Hill in Des Moines to share the World Hunger ministry. World Hunger’s participation in this day of advocacy is essential to giving voice in response to hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world.

Lutheran Day on the Hill 2012 has been made possible by a grant from ELCA World Hunger. Together LSI, the three Iowa Synods of the ELCA and World Hunger are partnering to advocate for our most vulnerable children, families and individuals.
Lutheran Day on the Hill begins at 9:30 a.m. at Elim Christian Fellowship and participants will make their way to the Iowa State Capitol Building after lunch to meet with their legislators. The day typically ends at approximately 2 p.m.
ELCA World Hunger addresses the root causes of hunger and poverty through a comprehensive program of relief, development, education, and advocacy. This program connects people, nationally and internationally, to the resources they need to lift themselves out of poverty.
