Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Christian Bishops in Nebraska

Woman_writing_letter_to_congress"The Bible proclaims God's concern for the poor, the 'least of these' (Matthew 25:45). As Christians, we are called to embody this concern in our faith communities and in civil society. As we debate our priorities for public resources at this time, our last option should be cutting care for 'the least of these.'"

—Excerpt from an op-ed written by a group of Christian bishops in the state of Nebraska (click here for full piece and complete list of authors).
