ELCA churches combine efforts to fight hunger

The 19 congregations of the Northwest Conference of the Minneapolis Area Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, including Elk River Lutheran and Word of Peace in Rogers, are working together to fight hunger in Africa.
They sent 400 volunteers to prepare meals at Feed My Starving Children last month in Coon Rapids. The volunteers included children as young 12 years old, youth groups, adults, and seniors from the various congregations working together to help combat one of the most serious food crises in pepole’s lifetime.
Feed My Starving Children is a nonprofit Christian organization that ships hand-packed meals specifically formulated for malnourished children in nearly 70 countries around the world.
