Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice that lobbies Congress and the administration on ending hunger in the U.S. and around the world. We are the largest organization of its kind in the nation. Bread has lobbyists on its staff and also mobilizes people of faith around the U.S. to communicate with Congress through letters, emails, phone calls, and in-person visits. We are based in Washington, D.C., near Capitol Hill.
