Advocacy Ministries of the ELCA

As we explore the effects of hunger and the church’s response in New Mexico, we invite you to learn more about the programs serving many of our neighbors.  Our partners at Lutheran Services in America are teaming up with the USDA Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) to offer a webinar about the various federal nutrition programs.  There is much more to federal nutrition programs than SNAP (formerly food stamps), and this webinar is an opportunity to familiarize yourself and explore how you can support your organization’s work with help from FNS programs – Summer Food Service Program, Child and Adult Care Food Program, Food Assistance for Disaster Relief, various food distribution programs, and more.

Conducted by FNS staff exclusively for LSA member organizations-including the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA)- this webinar will offer an overview of the various opportunities for partnership between FNS and LSA organizations. Join us!
