"In our country we put a lot of emphasis on self-reliance on everybody fending for themselves, liberty and those are all great strengths, but as a nation it has not been our strength to do what we can to reduce poverty."

—Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World, in A Place at the Table
