Bread for the World Sunday is an opportunity for your church or community of faith to join with others—in thousands of churches across the country—to live out God's vision of a world without hunger. Through our prayers for an end to hunger, letters, and phone calls to our nation's leaders, and financial support to Bread of the World, your church can give bold witness to God's justice and mercy in the world.
Jeremiah 29:11 reminds us that in tumultuous times God always has a plan for us. That even in these uncertain times with the global pandemic and the burgeoning food crisis in the U.S. and around the globe, God offers a future with hope.
Due to the global pandemic, many faith communities are meeting online, and even those that have resumed in-person services continue to keep their online worship. As a result, this year’s Bread for the World materials will include resources for virtual services such as a video message from Rev. Eugene Cho, president of Bread for the World.

The strength of Bread for the World is found in our shared commitment to address the root cause of hunger: poverty, discrimination based on race and gender, unemployment, immigration, mass incarceration, and economic inequality. On Bread for the World Sunday, we recognize and give thanks for the work churches, community groups, and denominations are all doing to remove the obstacles that keep people from sharing in God's abundance. We celebrate the diversity of faith traditions across race, ethnicity, and culture that are working together to end hunger. Moved by God's love in Jesus Christ, we reach out in love to our neighbors—and we help create a better future for all.
