"Overcoming hunger and all other forms of deprivation in the world.
One such phenomenon in our time—whereby nations operate within a globalized economic system—points to the world's serious identity crisis, for hunger not only threatens the divine gift of life of whole peoples, but also offends the lofty dignity and sacredness of the human person, while simultaneously offending God. Therefore, if concern over our own sustenance is a material issue, then concern over feeding our neighbor is a spiritual issue (James 2:14-18).
Consequently, it is the mission of all Orthodox Churches to exhibit solidarity and administer assistance effectively to those in need."
(The Mission of the Orthodox Church in Today's World Great and Holy Council of Crete)
