By Rev. Nancy Neal
The last couple of years have required us as an anti-hunger movement to focus on protecting our country's safety net. Yet we know that in order to actually end hunger, we must wrestle with the issues and policies that keep people poor. The texts this month offer strange and confounding stories that help us get to the many dimensions of the work of ending hunger.
Bread for the World is rolling out a new, long-term campaign, Bread Rising, which aims to end hunger by 2030. You will hear more about Bread Rising in the coming months with a call for more prayer, action, and giving. Bread for the World invites individuals, churches, and partners across the nation to join us — by praying, acting, and giving — to create a world without hunger.
Rev. Nancy Neal is associate for Denominational Women's Organization Relations at Bread for the World.
