The BGAV Hunger Ministry supports ongoing and project-based hunger ministries in the communities served by our churches by providing supplemental funding for our churches, associations, and ministry partners.
Assistance is available for your local hunger ministry through our BGAV World Hunger Funds! Learn more about eligibility for and proper utilization of these resources in the World Hunger Funds Policy. Requests and reports for hunger funds should be submitted using the online forms below.

World Hunger Offering
The BGAV established a Virginia Offering for World Hunger in 1982 and have contributed over $6.5 million in the past two decades alone. Half of these funds are used to support local and domestic ministries through the process outlined above, while the other half are distributed for global hunger relief through our partners worldwide.
BGAV churches can contribute to the World Hunger Offering throughout the year by designating gifts or donating online.
In addition, churches can mark their calendars for a special World Hunger Sunday emphasis on Sunday, October 8, 2017. Download a bulletin insert to share about the BGAV Hunger Ministry and participate in the World Hunger Offering.
