The CRS Rice Bowl is a way to enter into the season of Lent more fully through prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. In addition to suggesting little ways to offer personal prayers and sacrifices throughout the season, the Rice Bowl is used to lift families and communities out of poverty through monetary gifts.
75% of donations go to developing countries for the construction of wells, schools, and health centers, and for programs to help with farming, gardening, teaching, and parenting. 25% of donations go to alleviating hunger and poverty in the Diocese of Allentown.
