Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: David Beckmann

"The sun shines on everyone, rich and poor alike. If it were up to politicians in Washington or investors in New York, maybe the sun wouldn't shine without price. But the sun does shine on everybody, so there's fruit for Africans and beautiful weather than even homeless people can enjoy. Joy, energy, and determination well up within people. These, too, are free gifts from God."

—Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World, in Exodus from Hunger

Help ensure children in the United States and abroad have the nutrition they need in order to grow and thrive—ask President Barack Obama to set a goal and work with Congress on a plan to end hunger. Sign the petition today. (Photo courtesy of Magnolia Pictures)
