Registration is now open for Starve Wars: Episode IV at the 2019 Eucharistic Congress.
In the face of 3 billion people around the world facing hunger and poverty each day, Pope Francis reminds us, “The words of our Lord call to us today, telling us not to turn away, indifferent, when we know our neighbor is hungry.” Turning those words into action, we will once again kick off the Archdiocese of Atlanta’s Eucharistic Congress with a Friday morning meal-packing event.
We need approximately 650 volunteers of all ages and abilities to help pack 100,000 meals to go to the drought-stricken developing nation of Burkina Faso in West Africa. The event will take place on Friday, June 21 at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park. There will be two sessions, 9:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. in Hall A of the Convention Center.
