You can help end hunger every month of the year with ongoing gifts to Bread to the World.

Your gift is an affirmation of our shared commitment to persuade our nation’s leaders to provide adequate food and nutrition so that people most in need might receive the gift of hope and life.

"I want to be remembered as someone who made a difference in lives of my family members, my students, and people who struggle with hunger and poverty," writes Mary Murphy of Northampton, Mass.

People fundraise in different ways and for different reasons. Sometimes it’s in lieu of receiving gifts for personal life events, like a birthday, wedding or confirmation. Others organize an event like a bake sale or car wash. Or maybe they want to celebrate a personal goal like running a marathon or losing weight.
Whichever way you decide to fundraise, feel confident that your friends, family, and community will support your effort — if you ask them to.
