100% of all money collected through the Hunger Offering is used to feed hungry people around the world and share the “Bread of Life” with those who hunger for the good news of salvation and eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Hunger Funds are available to Southern Baptist missionaries to meet food-related needs such as assisting people with receiving food, buying food, growing food and/or using food properly.
How Is My Dollar Spent?
When a dollar is contributed through the Hunger Offering, unless otherwise designated, the first 25% will stay within the state of Alabama to assist associations with food pantries – the remaining will be divided 80% to the International Mission Board for overseas hunger projects while 20% is sent to the North American Mission Board to support hunger projects in the United States and Canada. Because personnel and volunteers are already in place, and promotional expenses come through other budgets…100% of your gift is used to minister to the hungry in Jesus’ name.
