The Des-Moines, Iowa-based National Catholic Rural Life Conference has published a study guide on hunger and poverty. It's both a reflection and a call to action and justice.
"It begins with an observation of the world as we know it: A world with resources and knowledge to produce ample food for all, and yet too many people have little to eat and few resources to lift themselves out of poverty.
"The content of this study guide delves into a critical reflection on how we relate the current world situation to the Story and Vision of our Catholic faith.

The guide concludes with the possibilities for action by individuals and groups. The hopeful result is a change in attitudes and behaviors accomplished in a spirit of solidarity with the poor and the care of God’s creation."
