A trove of leaked documents about rich and powerful people funneling assets into offshore tax havens was the subject of a recent blog post by Valéry Nodem of the Presbyterian Hunger Program.
The Presbyterian Hunger Program is offering advice for people who want to engage in more Earth-friendly holiday celebrations this year.
In preparation for Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week, the Presbyterian Hunger Program is inviting individuals and congregations to watch the encore presentation of a worship service exploring the Church’s biblical call to end poverty.

A partnership between a Detroit church and a local food upcycling nonprofit has resulted in providing 1,000 meals a week to the hungry.
Presbyterians want abundance of life for all. We want to help those living in poverty. We like to get our hands dirty to make a difference. We run food programs and build houses on mission trips. We partner with other agencies working to address poverty and hunger in our communities and around the world. The Matthew 25 vision embraces all these ways — and many more — in which we use our time, talents and treasure to feed the hungry and walk alongside the vulnerable.
In 2020, the price of bread doubled in Syria and the price of imported goods such as rice and sugar increased by 400%. The Jinishian Memorial Program provided coupons to 871 families to make food more affordable.
