Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Rev. David Beckmann


(Robin Stephenson)

"We must remind Congress that God calls our leaders to deliver the needy when they call, the poor and those who have no helper. Gutting programs like SNAP shows a blatant disregard to this divine call."

—Rev. David Beckmann, in "Cutting Food Stamps is a Bad Way to Balance the Budget," from Soujouners' God's Politics blog.

Members of Congress are in the process of making decisions about the budget and farm bill, and faithful advocates must tell them that any final budget or farm bill must not increase hunger.
