Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Rev. David Beckmann


"I am terrified by the likelihood of a financial crisis. It will hurt all of us, and it will hurt hungry and poor people most of all." —Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World, during the Circle of Protection faithful filibuster.

Tell your members of Congress that our nation's economy and creditworthiness are not bargaining chips. Contact your representative and senators and tell them they must protect our economic recovery and credit; end the government shutdown and pass a responsible budget that funds programs serving poor and vulnerable populations; and replace sequestration with a balanced plan that includes revenues and responsible spending cuts.
