Bread for the World
Washington, DC

Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging the nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad. Bread for the World Institute is a separately-incorporated organization that provides non-partisan policy analysis on hunger and strategies to end it. By changing policies, programs, and conditions that allow hunger and poverty to persist, Bread provides help and opportunities around the world.

Bread equips people to write personal letters and emails, meet with their members of Congress, and work with others to end hunger. Working through churches, campuses, and other organizations, Bread engages people in organized advocacy.

Bread works in a bipartisan way. Thousands of individual members, churches, and denominations are active in most Congressional districts. They speak truth to power with a moral and Christian voice. Our goal is to build the political will to end hunger and poverty.
