Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: David Beckmann

Letters delivered to members of Congress during Bread for the World's annual Lobby Day in Washington, D.C., June 2013 (Joseph Molieri/Bread for the World).

"Awareness of God's forgiveness allows us to reflect God's goodness in our own halting ways, and God uses even the modest acts of faith and compassion to make big changes in the world. "

— Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World, from Exodus from Hunger (2010).

Writing a letter, sending a personal email, or making a phone call to your member of Congress may seem like a small thing but when combined with other modest acts of faith, these actions help build the political will to end hunger.
