Bread in Your Palm

Coming soon—a Bread for the World mobile application! The app will give you quick access to Bread's latest talking points and key stats on priority issues for low-income people, as well as key content for Bread's campaigns. The app will make it easier to connect with your local organizers, call your members of Congress, donate to Bread, and sign up to receive Bread's online resources. Bread App will be available soon on all mobile operating systems.

Save the Date—Bread for the World Sunday

Thousands of congregations will observe Bread for the World Sunday on Sunday, October 16 (also World Food Day), or another Sunday this fall. It's an opportunity for congregations to renew their commitment to ending hunger and poverty. Bread for the World Sunday resources will include a study of Matthew 22:15-22 by Donald Senior, CP, a noted biblical scholar and president of Catholic Theological Union, and a litany and prayers by Rev. Michelle Baker-Wright, director of the chapel at Fuller Theological Seminary and assisting priest at St. James' Episcopal Church in Pasadena, CA. Congregations also will be able to use Marty Haugen's song, "Bread for the World," at no charge. For more information, visit www.bread.org/sunday.
