STARVE WARS is less than two months away!
Register today for STARVE WARS: EPISODE IV
at the 2019 Eucharistic Congress.
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 Friday, June 21 at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park. There will be two sessions, 9:00-10:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m., in Hall A of the Convention Center.
New to this year, we would like to invite all active and veteran members of all branches of the military to join us so that we may recognize you and your service at our 9:00 a.m. session. We would also like to strongly encourage clergy and clergy in formation to join us for either or both sessions. In order to be more inclusive, both sessions will have Spanish interpreters and the second session will be set up to include accommodating those living with disabilities. Space is limited and registration is required to participate.

We also invite you to share our Starve Wars trailers on your parish or school website and social media pages. Those links are below:
