I was hungry and you fed me....
Matthew 25:35

The Task Force on Hunger is made up of volunteers from congregations throughout the Diocese of Missouri. Their goals are to help fund food ministries, raise awareness about hunger-related issues, to serve as a resource to food ministries within the diocese, and to advocate on behalf of hungry persons in our diocese. 

The Task Force invites food ministries affiliated with an Episcopal congregation within the Diocese of Missouri to submit an application for funding for the coming calendar year. 

The food pantries and projects we support often operate on a shoestring budget but they are on the front lines in fighting hunger in our neighborhoods. Thus our primary work is to support these groups by providing money that helps keep them viable.

Applications for 2020 grants are now available:
