Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: LaVida Davis

Steves and Murray
Rick Steves of Washington state speaks to one of his senators, Patty Murray (D), about hunger and poverty during Bread for the World’s 2014 annual Lobby Day in Washington, D.C. (Bread for the World)

“As people of faith, our task is to change the conversation and make ending hunger a priority for our elected officials.” - LaVida Davis, director of organizing and grassroots capacity building at Bread for the World.

We are at a turning point in history, when nations are moving toward a collective goal of ending hunger and extreme poverty by 2030. To end hunger by 2030, faithful advocates must build the political will to end it, which means engaging our elected officials. 

Throughout the month of August, both Senate and House members are in their districts. Many have public appearances scheduled where constituents have an opportunity to talk with them about hunger and poverty. Bread for the World has a special set of resources to help you reach out to your members of Congress, including a voting record to see how senators and representative have voted on hunger issues.
