Chicago Council on Foreign Affairs: Guest Commentary — Not Your Grandma’s FBO: Today’s Faith-Based Organizations Play A Key Role In Global Food Security
Daniel Speckhard, president and CEO of Lutheran World Relief, discusses the role of faith-based organizations in working to alleviate poverty and food insecurity globally, writing, “As U.S. foreign assistance comes increasingly under budgetary pressure, the role of private faith-based and secular non-profits will loom even larger. They are able to leverage U.S. government support with private donations to extend and expand American efforts to fight poverty and global hunger” (3/29).
