The Hunger Task Force

The Hunger Task Force is active throughout our synod all year long, because hunger never sleeps, nor does it take a holiday.

This group of clergy, rostered leaders, and lay people have a passion for the hungry, homeless and under-represented in our society—locally and around the world.

Each winter, the task force conducts a Congregational Hunger Leaders Day in which seasoned and new hunger leaders from our synod gather to hear from national hunger leaders, learn from one another, and take back actionable items to start, continue and increase hunger advocacy in our congregations.

Other programs and fundraising events supported by the Hunger Task Force and carried out by many of our congregations include the Souperbowl of Caring, A Potlucks to End World Hunger, and the Hunger Education curriculum.

Chair of the Hunger Task Force is Mark Mollenkopf. He can be reached at
