Rick Steves, John Podesta at National Gathering
By Dr. Alice Walker-Duff
There's still time to register for Bread for the World's 2014 National Gathering on June 9-10. You won't want to miss our exciting lineup of powerful speakers and events.
On Monday, June 9, travel series host, guidebook author, and longtime Bread member Rick Steves will welcome you. John Podesta, counselor to President Obama, will talk about ending hunger by 2030.
That evening, partner organizations, former Bread board and staff members, and longtime friends will celebrate Bread for the World’s 40th anniversary over dinner. Your support has made it possible for us to celebrate 40 years of working together to end hunger.
Our celebration will culminate with Lobby Day on Tuesday, June 10. Former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Dan Glickman will brief us before we raise our collective Christian voice in the halls of Congress. We want to reform U.S. food-aid programs and our broken immigration system. At our Lobby Day reception, we will recognize Reps. Ed Royce (Calif.-39), Eliot Engel (N.Y.-16), Spencer Bachus (Ala.-06), Frank Wolf (Va.-10), and Sen. Tom Harkin (Iowa) for being champions against hunger.
Please join us in God's great work of liberating people from hunger. Register today.
Dr. Alice Walker Duff is the managing director at Bread for the World.
