The theme at the 2014 event will be World Hunger
In conjunction with the United Nations World Interfaith Harmony Week, InterFaith Works of CNY and Women Transcending Boundaries present the
2014 World Interfaith Harmony Assembly
When: Sunday, February 9, 2014, 3:00-5:00 p.m., with reception to follow
Where: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 4889 Bear Road, Liverpool, NY
This year’s event will feature different faith traditions presenting on their tenants relating to gratitude, followed by a challenge to give and live in solidarity with those who are least fortunate.
Central New York (CNY) faith leaders and faithful followers who are participating in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, the former Food Stamps program) Challenge will be invited to stand at the event in solidarity with those who struggle to get enough to eat.
The 2014 CNY SNAP Challenge: In 2013, New York State recipients of SNAP can expect to receive $29.40 per person per week. This represents a 10% cut over last year. Beginning after the World Interfaith Harmony Assembly, we invite faith leaders, congregations, community leaders, and elected officials to live on food that costs no more than $29.40 per week, and to donate the remainder of their typical weekly food budget to their faith community’s food pantry or InterFaith Works. Community donated funds and grocery store matches will be channeled through InterFaith Works to local faith community food provision programs. Participants in the SNAP Challenge are asked to blog, preach, pray, and raise community awareness about hunger in our community.
