Meatless Fridays at

CRS Rice Bowl is Catholic Relief Services’ Lenten faith-in-action program for families and faith communities. Through this program, we hear stories from our brothers and sisters in need worldwide, and devote our Lenten prayers, fasting and gifts to change the lives of the poor.

CRS shares meatless recipes so that we may eat in solidarity with the poor around the world and encourages us to put the money we've saved by not buying meat into our CRS Rice Bowl so that we can help others in need.
