 The Farm Track Experience

ALL synod congregations are invited to use the Farm Track Experience to increase awareness of hunger, the challenges of small farmers, and the work ELCA World Hunger does to address these issues. Our Farm Track kit is complete w/ props & directions and is available for church use. This inter-active and inter-generational activity will be a fun learning experience for all ages and anyone curious about the challenges of small farmers. Call or email the synod office to reserve a date for the Farm Track kit.

Lenten Giving Project

for 2021

The La Crosse Area Synod's Hunger Subcommittee is encouraging congregations to include a Lenten Giving Project in their 2021 Lenten ministry.

3 options are being suggested:

  1. Continue working towards achieving their goal(s) for the Family Farm Project which has been extended through this year.  

  2. Support the Neighbor for Neighbor Food Pantry (out of Tomah) which serves as a distribution hub for surplus produce and commodities to many area pantries.  

  3. Support a different ministry of your choosing that is working to end hunger.

Please also utilize this Lenten Litany from ELCA World Hunger resources.
