Forty Days for 1,000 Days

The Lenten period is an ideal time to make your faith real by taking action to eliminate the evils of hunger and malnutrition from our world.

Bread for the World has worked in collaboration with Women of Faith for the 1,000 Days Movement to develop a series of Lenten activities around the theme of Maternal and Child Nutrition in the 1,000-day window between pregnancy and a child’s second birthday.

Choosing to Fast: A Spiritual GuideChoosing to Fast: A Spiritual Guide

During this season of Lent, our wilderness journey with Jesus seems even bleaker since our nation is struggling to balance the needs of hungry and poor people with the need to reduce budget deficits and the national debt.

Drawn by the Spirit, we feel called into a time of prayer and fasting, turning to God for guidance and expecting that God will lead our nation in a new direction.

Hunger Report & Christian Study Guide

Bread for the World Institute's 2014 Hunger Report, Ending Hunger in America, proposes bold steps to end hunger in the United States by 2030. Returning the economy closer to the full employment level of 2000 would also decrease hunger from today’s rate of 14.5 percent.

The 2014 Hunger Report Christian Study Guide is a resource for church, school and other groups that want to reflect more deeply on the biblical basis for work to combat poverty, hunger, and inequality in society and linkages to key recommendations in the Hunger Report.
