CRS Rice Bowl

CRS Rice Bowl is a Lenten program of prayer, fasting, learning, and giving. The educational materials assist ongoing parish and school efforts in developing a spirituality of justice and solidarity with those most in need. Donations help fund CRS development projects in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America to produce more food, increase income and address poverty. 25% of contributions remain in this archdiocese for grants to parishes and organizations that help the poor in Western Washington.

Rice Bowl Grants in the Archdiocese of Seattle
Seventy-five percent of Rice Bowl donations are used by Catholic Relief Services overseas for development projects, such as small loans for women in the poorest areas of the world. (Visit the CRS website to learn more!) Twenty-five percent of the funds stay in each diocese for local projects.
A projected $490,000 was raised in this Archdiocese in Lent of 2017, and so about $122,500 was made available for over 270 grants in western Washington. The 2017 grant results are available below.
