Become a Hunger Action Congregation in 2018



Congregations around the country are responding to the biblical call to alleviate hunger and end its causes. The Presbyterian Hunger Program would like to hear from, encourage, and recognize these ministries.

Your church can covenant to become a Hunger Action Congregation. If you are doing an activity in one or more of the following areas.  When you are doing activities in all six areas, you can become a Certified Hunger Action Congregation. These are the six areas:

  1. Hunger Alleviation
  2. Development Assistance
  3. Hunger Education
  4. Lifestyle Integrity
  5. Corporate and Public Policy Witness
  6. Worship

All Hunger Action Congregations who have completed the covenant will be celebrated on World Food Day—October 16.

The Hunger Action Congregation application is online at

Questions?  Contact Monmouth Presbytery’s Hunger Action Advocate, Rev. Phyllis Zoon for more info or assistance in filling out the application. Phone 201-910-7047, email [email protected]

Since the launch of the initiative on June 1, 2017, 72 churches (9 in Monmouth Presbytery) in 28 states have become HACs, and 35 (3 in Monmouth Presbytery) of those are certified by doing ministries in all six areas!
