Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Rev. David Beckmann

David Beckmann
Rev. David Beckmann addresses Bread for the World members in Washington, D.C., during the 2013 National Gathering (Joseph Molieri/Bread for the World).

"As members of Congress return home for their August recess, we will be praying that God will give them wisdom. We will be urging them to put an end to brinksmanship and come to agreements on difficult issues. And we should all urge them to maintain a circle of protection around the programs that help hungry and poor people in our country and abroad."

—Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World, in an excerpt from "Congress: Restore the Circle of Protection and Your Reputations," printed in the Huffington Post, August 7, 2013.

Your senators and representative need to hear from you during the August recess.  Bread members are urged to set up in-district meetings with their members of Congress and to attend any town halls their members are facilitating. Contact your regional organizer to learn how your voice can make a difference in August.
