Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Bread Receives Centennial Medal

Catholic Charities USA, a nonprofit that serves more than 9 million people every year, awarded Bread its Centennial Medal in recognition of our service to people in need. The organization also honored the Catholic Health Association.

Rev. Larry Snyder, president of Catholic Charities, presented the medal to David Beckmann during services at St. Mark's Episcopal Church on Capitol Hill as part of Bread’s annual Lobby Day last Tuesday. Catholic Charities is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year.

"In our centennial, it is a privilege and honor for Catholic Charities USA to pay tribute to such essential organizations as Catholic Health Association and Bread for the World," he said. "Their willingness to stand with the poor and disenfranchised as we advocate for services and solutions that reflect dignity and respect for all people is truly inspirational. We are so fortunate to partner with people and work of this caliber."
