Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Art Simon


"[H]unger is largely invisible to most Americans, and hungry people have little political clout. As a result, efforts to cut nutrition programs have persisted over the years, and Bread for the World has frequently been forced to fight proposed cuts. Defending against cuts is not glamorous work, but without that work countless additional families would go hungry."

—Art Simon, in The Rising of Bread for the World: An Outcry of Citizens Against Hunger
