The Presbyterian Hunger Program provides funding to programs that work to address the root causes of hunger and look for long-term solutions. Grantees may also provide services to those experiencing hunger.

Proposals do not need to fit neatly into one of the following areas, but can include activities from multiple areas:

  • Hunger Relief Combined with Root Cause - support for organizations that alleviate hunger and do substantial work to address systemic causes of hunger and poverty.
  • Sustainable Development - programs that work toward long-term improvements to the quality of life of impoverished people and communities. Activities should aim to end hunger and its causes, increase self-reliance, and build social and economic power.
  • Advocacy - programs that advocate for policy changes that result in more affordable, health food for impoverished people, contribute to their self-development and a healthy environment, increase freedom from oppression, and/or build alternatives that are more prosperous for individuals and their communities.
  • Intentional and Sustainable Living - programs that help churches move toward collective and personal lifestyles that demonstrate care and stewardship toward Creation and the critical needs of impoverished people.
  • Education and Interpretation - funds for programs that educate the church and public about the root causes of hunger, poverty and environmental degradation.

Eligible organizations are those that work in one or more of the traditional five areas and organizations, including PC (USA) congregations, demonstrating that a significant part of their work, or the specific project for which funds are being sought, attempts to address the root and systemic causes of hunger.
