Building the political will to get the U.S. government to do its part in ending hunger takes the work of many individuals and organizations. That’s why Bread for the World joins with partners, works in coalitions, and helps to build up the advocacy capacity of other organizations. Our overall goal is to end hunger rather than building up our own organization.
