What is the 30 Hour Famine?
Students around the world loving God and fighting hunger.
Jackson Church’s Youth Group will grow closer to Christ and each other as they fast together for 30 hours and raise funds to fight hunger. What’s more, by doing the Famine students challenge themselves to be part of something bigger than themselves. To take action for God’s kingdom. To help save the lives of hungry kids. To permanently change the way your students see the world.

How the Famine works?
The students learn about hunger and fundraise to help feed and care for children living in poverty. On Famine weekend on April 22-23, students get up close and personal with hunger by going 30 hours without food. The donations you send in after the Famine will be used to change lives by working towards the eradication of hunger and poverty here in the NJ and around the world.
