Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: David Beckmann


"[W]hen we speak with one voice, Congress listens. I am humbled by the faithfulness of our members and activists in speaking out with and for hungry people."

—Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World, in a statement on the House version of the farm bill, which included steep cuts to SNAP (formerly food stamps) and food aid. The bill failed to pass yesterday.
