World Hunger and Poverty - Through the World Hunger/Poverty program, the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR) not only supplies food for hungry people, but also helps poor countries move forward with development. Seeds, tools and training are provided to enable people to grow their own food. First United Methodist Church has provided support for this ministry for many years.
