Quote of the Day: Amelia Kegan
“[B]read for the World members are not most folks. When it comes to anti-hunger advocacy, we don't check the opt-out box because the policy is complex or the numbers seem daunting. We don't turn to other issues because partisanship has heated up, legislation is blocked up, and people are fed up.”
—Amelia Kegan, Bread for the World senior policy analyst, speaking during Lobby Day on June 11
Make sure Congress knows there is an organized and unified body of Christians who believe hunger is unacceptable. Call Congress today and tell your representative to vote “no” on a farm bill that includes cuts to SNAP.
