Through CRS Rice Bowl, Catholic Relief Service’s annual Lenten program of prayer, fasting, learning, and giving, U.S. Catholics fund projects that alleviate hunger and poverty around the world. 

25% of CRS Rice Bowl donations remain in Central Washington to support projects that work to alleviate hunger and poverty in our region.

Community food banks and/or meal sites

Community or parish gardens that grow fresh produce for low-income people

Projects that increase access to healthy food for low-income people
