Bread for All

Regardless of how you slice it, the simple act of providing bread to the hungry is a comfort and an act of care and compassion.  Bread for the World's mission is to end poverty and hunger through a coalition of religious, altruistic and generous foundations and activists.

"Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad.

By changing policies, programs, and conditions that allow hunger and poverty to persist, we provide help and opportunity far beyond the communities where we live.

We can end hunger in our time. Everyone, including our government, must do their part.

With the stroke of a pen, policies are made that redirect millions of dollars and affect millions of lives.

By making our voices heard in Congress, we make our nation’s laws more fair and compassionate to people in need," explains the website.
