Bread for the World Institute provides nonpartisan policy analysis on hunger and strategies to end it. The Institute has been educating opinion leaders, policymakers, and the public about hunger in the United States and abroad since 1975.
Bread for the World Institute is a separately-incorporated 501(c)3 organization. Gifts to the Institute are tax-deductible.
The Institute publishes a book-length Hunger Report every year. Each edition focuses on a particular topic and its relationship to the root causes of hunger and malnutrition. Recommendations for policy change based on the report’s analysis guide Bread for the World’s advocacy.
The 2016 Hunger Report, The Nourishing Effect: Ending Hunger, Improving Health, Reducing Inequality, explores the connections among hunger, food insecurity, and health problems in the United States.
A new study commissioned by Bread for the World Institute and featured in the report shows that hunger and food insecurity cost the United States at least $160 billion in extra healthcare costs in 2014 alone. The Nourishing Effect offers recommendations for healthcare providers, anti-hunger advocates, and policymakers to help make a healthier, hunger-free United States a reality.
The 2015 Hunger Report, When Women Flourish … We Can End Hunger, examines the links between global women’s empowerment and ending hunger and malnutrition. One cannot be achieved without the other. Gender equality depends on strengthening women’s bargaining power, reducing their burden of unpaid work, and building a collective voice in public life.
The 2014 report, Ending Hunger in America, provides a detailed, four-part plan to end hunger in the U.S.
The Institute also produces briefing papers, fact sheets, and infographics. All resources are designed for an audience of policymakers and activists.
The Institute’s current analysis and advocacy areas include:
Solving a complex problem such as hunger requires a clear understanding of the impact of specific policies and how policies affect each other. The Institute’s nonpartisan analysis and identification of action steps help strengthen Bread as a trusted voice in national life.
