Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Deliver Your Influence to Congress in Person


By Eric Mitchell

Will you join us in making a difference for hungry people on Capitol Hill?

Bread for the World's 2014 Lobby Day will take place on Tuesday, June 10. The day is a unique opportunity for you to communicate personally with your members of Congress and their staffers in Washington, D.C. This year we will be focusing on two critical issues impacting hungry people in the United States and around the world: U.S. food aid programs and immigration reform.

Lobby Day will begin with worship, followed by an issues briefing, and then visits with congressional offices on Capitol Hill. We will be urging Congress to reform U.S. food aid programs and to pass comprehensive immigration reform.

In the evening, we will be hosting a reception honoring members of Congress who have worked to end hunger and poverty through their work in Congress. Reps. Ed Royce (Calif.-39), Eliot Engel (N.Y.-16), Spencer Bachus (Ala.-06), Frank Wolf (Va.-10), and Sen. Tom Harkin (Iowa) will be recognized for their efforts.

Registering is easy and free! Don’t miss out on the opportunity to be a part of another successful Lobby Day. I look forward to seeing you here in Washington, D.C., on June 10.

Eric Mitchell is Bread for the World's director of government relations.


To attend the full 2014 National Gathering June 9-10, register online today. The full rate for registration is $80. Lobby Day is free, but registration is required.
