Child_eating_sandwich_FB"As Christians we affirm the right to food: the right of every man, woman, and child on earth to a nutritionally adequate diet. This right is grounded in the value God places on human life and the belief that 'the earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof.'"

—A passage from Bread for the World's 1975 statement of policy, "The Right to Food." Taken from Bread founder Art Simon's book The Rising of Bread for the World.
