Synod seeks to end food insecurity

The Southeastern Minnesota Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) held its annual assembly at the Mayo Civic Center in Rochester Saturday as as part of an effort "to collaborate to end food insecurity in southeastern Minnesota."

Bishop Steven Delzer unveiled the Synod's six-year initiative, "Enough Food for All," with a goal "to end food insecurity in Southeastern Minnesota by 2020."

More than 600 voting members represented 176 congregations in southeastern Minnesota during a time of worship, fellowship and education.

In the next six years, congregations from the Southeastern Minnesota Synod (which include 122,000 people) "will collaborate in ways that seek to provide consistent access to adequate, nutritious food for southeastern Minnesotans."

The synod will expand and strengthen existing partnerships with organizations such as Channel One and Second Harvest and also plans to build new relationships "with any organization or group that is willing to share in this initiative."
