Nancy Lister-Settle

The term Hunger Action Advocate (HAA) was coined by the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. in 1973 when the Women’s Birthday Offering established a network of 14 Hunger Action Advocates to serve the synods and the General Assembly’s Task Force on world Hunger. RE Nancy Lister-Settle (Dallas Center, First) has served the Presbytery of Des Moines as HAA since 1994.

Hunger Action Advocates are a vital part of the Presbyterian Hunger Program’s (PHP) local work as they serve presbyteries as educators, motivators, and facilitators of hunger action. As advocates of others, they resource, alert, and mobilize Presbyterians for specific hunger action.

Nancy assists congregations and other groups to become engaged with the poor in their own communities and in other countries to address immediate needs and long-term solutions. She provides a link with local, regional and national ecumenical agencies (including PHP) which address issues of direct hunger relief, hunger-related development assistance, public policy advocacy, education and interpretation about hunger and lifestyle issues, including environmental justice.
