Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger
print this page


Deepening your understanding of hunger and poverty issues is the first step in working to end hunger. When you understand what the issues are and identify the problems in your own mind, it's easier to decide on what action to take.

Worldwide, the number of hungry people has dropped significantly over the past two decades, but 842 million people continue to struggle with hunger every day. Each year, 2.6 million children die as a result of hunger-related causes.

But progress has been made. There has been a reduction of more than 34 percent in global hunger since 1990.

Bread for the World can be a resource and partner with you and your faith community in discerning your next steps to end hunger.

Bread offers many educational resources, including our annual Hunger Report, study guides, and curricula for Sunday schools, youth groups, and adult forums, and more!
