Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Phone Calls Do Make A Difference

Great news!  People across the country, including Bread members, have been making phone calls to their Senators asking them to make NO cuts to the Food Stamp Program.  Yesterday the Senate Agriculture Committee dropped cuts to the Food Stamp Program, which would have affected 300,000 families currently on the program.

Can I get an AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I know we often feel that our calls and letters don't make a difference or get lost in the void, but it is clear the Senate Agriculture Committee felt the pressure from YOU!  The work isn't done - the House hasn't made their decisions yet, but please take a moment to say a prayer of thanks and give yourself a pat on the back (or a piece of Halloween candy)!

Amen!! Often, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and hopeless with our call to be advocates. It's a hard struggle. I'm very encouraged by this news!!! Celebration is a fundamental practice in the work for justice and I think I'm going to celebrate with a pint of Ben and Jerry's. hehe.
