Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger
 

Webinar: Everything You Wanted to Know About the 2014 Offering of Letters

OL Sunday.php
Each year, Bread for the World members acrooss the nation write to their members of Congress to change policies and programs that can end hunger. (Joseph Molieri/Bread for the World)

By LaVida Davis

In the Old Testament, the prophet Isaiah declared God’s promise that babies would live long and prosperous lives. Register for February's conference call and webinar to learn how your actions can fulfill God’s promise by helping your church, campus, or community write letters that will win reforms to U.S. food aid that can help millions escape hunger.

Thousands of the new 2014 Offering of Letters kits were mailed recently to Bread for the World leaders. And now we are ready to answer all of your questions about how you can use the kits and write hunger into history. (Kits are available to order from our online store here or  download materials from the 2014 Offering of Letters website).

When should I conduct an Offering of Letters? Why are we focusing on food aid, and what reforms still need to be made after the farm bill? What if my congregation is more interested in domestic poverty? How many letters do we need to make a difference?

Our experts on the topic will be available just for you. And if you are new the webinars, we have a how-to guide online to help you.

Join us Tuesday, February 18, at 4:00 p.m. ET (adjust for your time zone) to learn all about the 2014 Offering of Letters. You can ask questions during the webinar in our online chat box, or email them in advance to Marion Jasin (mjasin@bread.org), Bread's organizing coordinator, and we'll get them to the front of the line.

LaVida Davis is director of organizing and grassroots capacity building at Bread for the World.
