Quote of the Day: Rev. Gradye Parsons
"Jesus commands us to help those in need. Buying nutritious food grown in the country where it is needed means it will reach hungry children and families more quickly. Local and regional economies will be strengthened. More of the food-aid budget will actually be spent on food, which means millions more meals can be provided. Food-aid reform is a win-win-win."
—Rev. Gradye Parsons, stated clerk of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A) on food-aid reform
Bread for the World's 2014 Offering of Letters focuses on reforming U.S. food aid. Smart reforms would allow food aid to reach millions more people in need each year, at no additional cost to U.S. taxpayers. Learn more at www.bread.org/ol.
