Through CRS FoodFast—Be the Change, Catholic Relief Services helps you to create an experience that is unique to the charism and needs of your community.  Be the Change explores the realities of global hunger through the lens of Catholic Social Teaching. Participants are encouraged to reflect on Jesus’ call to discipleship as an invitation to effect meaningful change in their own lives and in our world.

Pick and choose from a wide variety of community builders, prayer resources, learning experiences, and general reflection activities to create your own unique CRS FoodFast event.  Schedule templates are included in the Coordinator’s Manual and provide a framework to guide your planning.  Consider using the supplemental resources on the CRS FoodFast website ( and integrate your own ideas to enhance the overall experience for participants. We recognize the level of commitment many faith and school communities have to inspiring young people to live out their faith in solidarity with our sisters and brothers around the world.  We hope the resources in this theme help you to achieve that vision.
