Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Call your Members of Congress

Be Part of Bread for the World's Two-for-ONE-Spirit Strategy!

Nervous about making a call - check out this short YouTube video to see how quick and easy it is!

Action 1. Call your senator or representative at 1-800-826-3688 during the week of November 13-17, and urge him/her to make sure poverty-focused development assistance is increased by at least the $2 billion amount requested by President Bush.  This special, toll-free number will connect you to the Capitol switchboard, where you will ask to be transferred to your senator's or representative‚Äôs office. 

Action 2 Follow up with a handwritten note to your senator or representative (addresses below) to reinforce your request. Remember, it takes several weeks for mail to be delivered to congressional offices. A message written the same day as your phone call will arrive 2-3 weeks later and remind the member of Congress of your message.
