Bread for the World challenges us...

We can end hunger in our time...whether the hungry live in the next house, the next state, or the next continent. Confronting the problem of hunger can seem overwhelming. What can one person possibly do? As it turns out, plenty. Everyone, including our government, must do their part. Together, we can build the political commitment needed to overcome hunger and poverty.
