Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Dominic Duren


"People fail to realize the pain and embarrassment that comes from not being able to feed your family."

—Dominic Duren, director of HELP, at the Nov. 25 launch of Bread for the World Institute's 2014 Hunger Report, Ending Hunger in America. HELP is a Cincinnati, Ohio, program that helps returning citizens in the community find jobs that enable them to provide for themselves and their families.

Because a good job is still the best way out of poverty, helping individuals with significant barriers to work improve their prospects for employment is one of the recommendations of the 2014 Hunger Report. Read more in Chapter 3 of the report.
