Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

JustFaith Ministries

JustFaith is a Scripture-based adult-education program that looks at poverty and compassion through the lens of faith. Through prayer, study, and immersion experiences, participants are empowered to respond to the prophetic call to bring justice to a broken world.

In 2008, Bread for the World worked with JustFaith to develop a new, ecumenical version of the program's curriculum to meet a growing interest in the larger Christian community. Bread for World is now a full partner in JustFaith, along with the Campaign for Human Development, Catholic Relief Services, Maryknoll Fathers and Brothers, and Pax Christi USA.

Through JustFaith, individuals explore the ways that faith inspires them to love and care for people who are most in need in the world.

Today we are faced with a number of sobering facts. Millions of children die of malnutrition-related causes each year, a billion people do not have access to safe drinking water, and in our own communities, families struggle daily to put food on the table.

The Scriptures provide inspiration for us to care for people suffering each day and also to urge our nation's leaders to take action to address the systems that create and sustain unjust conditions in our world today. You have been given a unique role as a voter in a democratically elected government. You have a powerful voice. You can hold policy makers and those who allocate our common resources accountable. Christians across the country urge our nation's decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad through Bread for the World.

Pope Francis has called people of faith to prayer and action, saying hunger is an “emergency.” He has exhorted all people to help establish food as a human right, honored in all places. Bread for the World believes that if Christians unite with a shared voice against hunger we can forge the paths to justice in this world and fill the hungry with good things.

Bread invites you to join with us in our work by praying to end hunger, taking action, and giving of your resources.
