In the New Testament, James warns us that a faith without works is a dead faith. “If a brother or sister is poorly clothed or lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that?” (James 2:15) Words, even spiritual sounding words, aren’t enough. The gospel compels us to practical acts of mercy.
This is exactly why the church must take an active role in feeding the hungry around the world. Hungry people, and there are almost 1 billion men, women and children suffering from hunger around the world, are not just issues; they are people in need of the grace and love of Christ. They bear the image of God and need the message and hope of the Gospel.
Every dollar given to the offering is earmarked to fight hunger—whether it’s next door or across the globe.
Florida Baptists partner with Southern Baptists to fight hunger here in Florida and throughout the world:

*Do to the ongoing coronavirus crisis and the financial demands this has placed on local churches, the Florida Baptist Convention has opted not to promote the special Hunger Offering emphasis in July.*
