What if you could end world hunger? How would you go about helping the 1.4 billion people living in extreme poverty? You'll find answers to these questions and more in the new book Exodus From Hunger, by David Beckmann, Bread for the World's president.
This month, Beckmann talks to Breadcast about why he wrote the book and offers individual steps people can take to end hunger. "Advocacy--smart, thoughtful, prayerful advocacy by people who live in this country--can change Congress and move the world. The main thing I want people to do is help us change the politics of poverty," he says.
