(From a reader): Connecting fasting + almsgiving is challenging, so I’m keeping it simple. A friend shared with me that she always buys something for the food pantry every time she shops, so at the very least I am trying to do that. I hope at some point to figure out how to actually go hungry and give what I could have eaten to the poor. Not there yet.

This Great Lent, we invite our readers to an intentional practice of the connection between fasting and almsgiving. Please email us at with details about how you plan to put the Almsgiving Challenge into practice. We’ll share your experience anonymously with our readers.
