Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Muhammad Yunus


"Humans are not born to suffer the misery of hunger and poverty. They suffer now as they did in the past because we turn our heads away from this issue."

—Muhammad Yunus, economist and Nobel Peace Prize recipient

Use this summer as an opportunity to fight hunger and poverty. Reach out to your members of Congress. Your senators and representative need to hear from you during the August congressional 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.
