Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: David Beckmann

Captol and tree
"At its core, Christmas is about the seemingly impossible becoming a reality. An unwed girl can conceive the divine, and a child born in a manger can usher in the kingdom of God. Our faith teaches that all things are possible through Christ who strengthens us. The Gospel message that the hungry will be filled is attainable here and now."

--David Beckmann, President of Bread for the World, in "A Wave of Prayer to End Hunger, Protect SNAP" printed in The Huffington Post Relgion Blog on December 6, 2013.

Protecting SNAP (formerly food stamps) in the farm bill is attainable. As we head toward the new year and members of Congress finalize the farm bill, urge them to protect programs like SNAP and international food aid.  Now is not the time to take food from hungry people.
