Voices of Faith: Statements from Religious Leaders and Actors

Author: Katherine Marshall

June 13, 2016

The moral imperative of feeding the hungry and caring for the poor lies at the heart of the world’s major religions. Religious leaders and communities offer enormous potential to galvanize global political will, catalyze local action, and achieve lasting change in the lives of vulnerable people. Consequently, in June 2016 Ertharin Cousin, executive director of the World Food Program (WFP), invited religious scholars and leaders to engage in dialogue with the World Food Programme’s membership on interreligious engagement for Zero Hunger. In support of this discussion WFP asked a diverse group of religious leaders to offer their thoughts. Compiled in this report, the statements provide not only ideas and concerns, but also inspiration for shared work ahead. Berkley Center Senior Fellow Katherine Marshall was a project consultant and responsible for drafting the report.
