what you give up for Lent
changes lives

$1 per day during Lent ($40) can provide a family with food for one month

Last year, CRS Rice Bowl participants donated $10 million, which provided:

$7.5 million for projects that support the poor and vulnerable overseas.

  • Seeds and training to support farmers improve harvests
  • Clean drinking water support for vulnerable communities
  • Health exams and treatment support for children

$2.5 million for projects that support the poor and vulnerable in the United States (twenty-five percent of your donation stays in your own diocese and goes to food pantries, soup kitchens, and other programs that help your neighbors in need).
