2021 Offering of Letters to Congress

Welcome to the 2021 Offering of Letters to Congress. We expect to fully launch the Offering of Letters by mid-February. As we continue our advocacy efforts to expand anti-hunger programs in response to COVID-19, our educational materials will focus on four issues: food systems, climate change, racial and gender equity, and economic justice.

Supplemental materials will be rolled out for each of the four issue areas, respectively, on a quarterly basis.

Do not miss out on getting this year’s OL materials. Sign up to receive notice when the 2021 materials are available.

The Offering of Letters is a key organizing and advocacy tool at Bread for the World. It is when people in your congregation, campus, or group gather to write personalized letters and/or emails to members of Congress on hunger and poverty issues. Christians may use this tool to further God’s kingdom on earth by working to end hunger and poverty in our lifetime.

Bread’s organizing team plays a pivotal role in the Offering of Letters. In March, organizers will lead a series of Offering of Letters webinars. Learn more and register here.

We look forward to adding your voice to the important work of ending hunger through this year’s Offering of Letters.
