Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: 1 John 3:17-18

"If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him?  Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth." —1 John 3:17-18 (NIV)

Today is World Food Day. On this day of solidarity in the struggle against hunger, take the time to contact your members of Congress and tell them to pass a bill that opens the government, prevents default, and funds programs serving struggling families in the United States and abroad.
