Catholic Relief Services Rice Bowl develops resources to enrich the Lenten experience. By praying with our families and faith communities; fasting in solidarity with those who hunger; learning more about the challenges of poverty overseas; and giving sacrificial contributions to support those in need, we can make a difference in our world.
Seventy-five percent of CRS Rice Bowl donations come to Catholic Relief Services to help fund development programs designed to increase food security around the world. These projects focus on initiatives that bring clean water, small enterprise development, agricultural expertise, educational opportunities, and HIV/AIDS and mother/child health programs to the poor in more than 40 countries. Twenty-five percent of CRS Rice Bowl donations support hunger and poverty alleviation efforts in dioceses within the United States.
