Mobilize Your Church

As Christians, we are called to seek justice and to care for those experiencing hunger and poverty, and churches are especially important in telling the story of hunger and fostering change.

“Where two or three are gathered together in my name, I am there among them.”

Offering of Letters to Congress

Each year, Bread’s Offering of Letters campaign engages churches, campuses, and other faith communities in writing personalized letters to Congress on issues related to hunger in the U.S. and around the world.

Churches and community groups collect letters and present them as an offering to God before mailing them to Congress. Hundreds of Offerings of Letters are held each year, resulting in tens of thousands of letters. Over the years, these letters and emails have helped inspire our leaders in Washington, D.C., to pass legislative victories that have impacted millions of people. LEARN MORE

Dedicate a Sunday to Ending Hunger

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. Here’s how:

  1. Select a Sunday of your choosing. Consider a weekend in your annual calendar that may complement the theme of addressing hunger.
  2. During your worship service, include prayers for people struggling with hunger and for our nation’s decision makers who can change the policies and conditions that allow hunger to persist.
  3. You may also wish to devote your sermon, children’s message, and other activities to ending hunger in God’s world.
  4. Many churches choose to conduct an Offering of Letters to Congress during this weekend.

On Bread for the World Sunday, we celebrate the diversity of faith traditions across race, ethnicity, and culture that are working together to end hunger. Bread offers videos, biblical reflections, prayers, and other resources.

Open your mouth for those who cannot speak, and for the rights of those who are left without help.

- Proverbs 31:8a NLV
