Come to the Table program is pleased to once again offer technical assistance grants to support up to 30 rural United Methodist churches throughout North Carolina that are engaging in emergency hunger relief efforts.
RAFI-USA is pleased to announce a new fellowship program. This fellowship will bring together faith leaders from across North Carolina to learn about the root causes of hunger, uncover and challenge the dominant narrative around why people are hungry, and learn how story-based strategies can transform the conversation on hunger in communities.
RAFI’s Come to the Table program has been providing mini-grants to rural United Methodist Churches throughout North Carolina. We had a conversation with one grantee, Dave Clark of Norman UMC and God’s Garden and Davon Goodwin of the Sandhills AgInnovation Center to discuss their food ministry and the impact of the grant.
Right before the coronavirus shut everything down, RAFI-USA held a screening of our documentary film ‘Under Contract: Farmers and the Fine Print’ at the Congregational Church of Pinehurst, United Church of Christ. We recently spoke with Kathy Nekton, chair of the church’s Mission, Peace, and Justice team to learn about her experience viewing the film.
