Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

This Wednesday, Bread for the World teamed up with Sojourners and dozens of local partners around the country to form “human circles” in 13 locations in eight states – exactly one week before the Super Committee’s recommendations are due. We’ve compiled some highlights from our events in Washington, Idaho, Oregon, and Colorado. 

Here are some photos from all of the events nationwide:

In Portland, our event got picked up by Fox 12 news in Portland:

In Seattle, WA, our event was picked up by King 5 News (the last 15 seconds feature the event):


And the Vancouver, WA, event also received some coverage from The Columbian. Thanks to all of the activists who braved rain and cold temperatures to take action with us.
