Connect with other hunger leaders and the ELCA World Hunger staff
Lots of people throughout the ELCA are involved in the work of fighting hunger. Below are some ways to join the community.
Use WebEx to attend meetings from your house
Hunger leaders are busy people. What’s more, they rarely live in the same place. So getting together for meetings can be tricky and time consuming. That’s where WebEx comes in! WebEx
is online meeting software that allows people to meet from anywhere that has both an Internet and phone connection. This might be your house, your local church, or the airport with your laptop and cell phone. In addition to holding hunger team meetings, you might want to use it to offer an online seminar about a hunger-related topic in your community, or to connect with hunger leaders in other parts of the country. Better still, WebEx is free to hunger leaders using it to conduct hunger work.
If you’d like to use WebEx, simply contact Nancy Michaelis. She or one of the other hunger staff will accompany you and your team through the whole process, from scheduling, to preparing, to the meeting itself. And if you’re curious but a little uncertain, give Nancy a call. She’s happy to talk to you about your concerns, hold a demonstration for you, or even put you in touch with other hunger leaders who have used it and lived to tell!

The causes of world hunger -- and possible solutions -- are many and complex. We often bump into them as we go about our daily lives. It gives a person lots to think about. So the World Hunger staff has taken to expressing our thoughts publicly, through the Hunger Rumblings blog. Here you’ll find what’s on our minds, from the serious to the puzzling to the interesting to the exciting. In writing down our thoughts, we hope it gives you a resource for your own work and thought. What’s more, we very much hope you’ll join the conversation through your comments on the blog. The more voices, the richer the exchange as we all walk on this journey together.
