This effort, ‘One Human Family, Food for All,’ is led by Caritas Internationalis, the association of Catholic Charities agencies from around the world.
Thanks to the help of many, each year, Catholic Charities provides nutritious meals for tens of thousands of our New York neighbors –Non-Catholic and Catholic alike. Recently, our Catholic Charities agencies met to discuss the increasing demand for food in their communities. Once again this year, Catholic Charities will spearhead the Feeding Our Neighbors effort with a goal of raising food and funds for one million additional meals. Feeding Our Neighbors also seeks to raise awareness and be a strong voice for those who do not have enough food.
At 12 Noon on December 10, I will join in prayer with Pope Francis and millions of people throughout the world, to end to hunger. Will you also please pause for five minutes of prayer and reflection?
May this be an Advent season of hope for our hungry neighbors.
Monsignor Kevin Sullivan
