Faith leaders pledge to fight hunger

Baptist leaders were among nearly 100 top officials from all major faith groups on the eve of Pope Francis’ arrival calling for a shift in national priorities to end hunger and poverty.

Faith leaders gathered Sept. 21 at an interfaith summit that is part of a larger movement in the faith community to end hunger and poverty by 2030. They committed themselves to encourage their own communities to work for the end of hunger and signed a pledge to work to change national priorities.
