The numbers are coming in: 295 people participated in our Lobby Day last week, visiting 57 offices in the Senate and 106 in the House. Bread activists talked about forming a circle of protection around federal programs that help poor and hungry people in the United States and around the world. There were 230 attempted meetings, 168 scheduled meetings, and a number of impromptu meetings. Thank you to everyone who participated. Don't forget: You can keep the momentum going by writing your member of Congress.

Allowing our own potential to grow and set an example for others to share.
Learning to share resources requires training.
We are not born with the natural capacity to share.
First we must be willing in our own heart to make an offer.
Then we have to put it into practice.
Learning to share takes, time, and patience.
