In the contemporary United States, few can rival the voice and energy of Bread for the World, a citizens' group inspired by its Christian faith to lead the cause to end hunger." — World Bank Report
Watch "We Are Bread for the World"
Who We Are
Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad.
By changing policies, programs, and conditions that allow hunger and poverty to persist, we provide help and opportunity far beyond the communities where we live.
We can end hunger in our time. Everyone, including our government, must do their part.
With the stroke of a pen, policies are made that redirect millions of dollars and affect millions of lives.
By making our voices heard in Congress, we make our nation’s laws more fair and compassionate to people in need.
What We Do
Bread for the World members write personal letters and emails and meet with our members of Congress. Working through our churches, campuses, and other organizations, we engage more people in advocacy.
Each year, Bread for the World invites churches across the country to take up a nationwide Offering of Letters to Congress on an issue that is important to hungry and poor people.
As a non-profit, Bread for the World works in a bipartisan way. Our network of thousands of individual members, churches, and denominations ensures Bread’s presence in all U.S. congressional districts.
Together, we build the political commitment needed to overcome hunger and poverty.
How You Can Help
God's grace in Jesus Christ moves us to help our neighbors, whether they live in the next house, the next state, or the next continent.
Confronting the problem of hunger can seem overwhelming. What can one person do? Plenty—and Bread for the World can help.
