In 1979, Anchorage artist Marianne Wieland attended a Bible study at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church where Pastor Rick Halvorson spoke about world hunger. In an effort to make a difference, the first of what was to become known as the “hunger prints” was created.The embossed prints, hand produced in her studio with the help of volunteers, follow a different biblical theme each year. The entire proceeds of these yearly prints are designated to hunger projects both locally and worldwide. The money raised through 2020 has totaled nearly $300,000.
I’ve collected a number of years of these prints. These prints make wonderful spiritual pieces for your home, and thoughtful gifts for Christmas and other special occasions during the year. Type Wieland in the search window to see other prints and past writeups of this meaningful ministry.
Thank you Marianne for your service to mankind!
