Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Watch Bread President on PBS

Check out tomorrow’s PBS’ “Need to Know” program—Bread president David Beckmann is interviewed by Jon Meacham, editor of Newsweek, about the silent epidemic of malnutrition and how our domestic farm policy may be harming malnourished children in the developing world. Beckmann appears in the second segment of the show.

After you watch the segment, please take a few minutes to write a letter to your member of Congress to help ensure that our kids receive better nutrition. Nearly one in four children suffers from hunger in the United States. Congress needs to fully fund and pass the Child Nutrition Act that is currently stalled in the Capitol.

The programs authorized by this Act—school lunches and breakfasts, summer feeding programs, and the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program—are critical to ending childhood hunger. We urgently need your help.

Thanks—and spread the word! Since “Need to Know” airs at various times throughout the country, please check your local PBS schedule.
