Events & Opportunities

World Food Day Celebration –Sunday, Oct. 16, 3:00 pm,

End Hunger Games at Durham Farmer’s Market Pavilion at Durham Central Park, 3:00 pm. Live Music, Sharing with Hunger Relief Organizations, Food Drive Collection, and Games!

Take the SNAP Challenge during Oct. 10-16!  SNAP Challenge is — 1) for five days, spend no more than $4.20 per person per day (the NC daily allowance for SNAP benefits) on the food you eat; 2) You may prorate items you purchase but do not use it all and use the remainder later; 3) Donate the additional money you would have spent on food during that time to the Durham CROP Hunger Walk where 100% of the money raised goes to hunger-fighting agencies locally and around the world. If you cheated (which many of us do), be sure to reflect that in your donation and personally reflect on the fact that SNAP recipients do not have that option – it is all day, every day for them. Register here for the SNAP Challenge!

Our Mission

Durham Congregations in Action is a cooperative, multi-faith network offering care and support for the most vulnerable and forgotten in our community, and planting seeds in new initiatives to change lives in Durham. Its mission is to bring together congregations to promote understanding across boundaries of faith, race and ethnicity and build an inclusive community  of justice and peace.

Our Affirmation

In a spirit of reconciliation and with gratitude for the gift of diversity, DCIA seeks to engage and empower people of faith to create a community of justice and peace through our common prayers and acts of compassion; and with prophetic courage to act as advocates for the dignity and well-being of all persons, recognizing that behind every human face is the face of God.
