An empty table is not what Christmas should look like, but it’s a reality too many children face this holiday season.

But this Christmas you can fill their tables and make ending child hunger a national priority all year-round. Just write Congress before midnight, and a generous member will donate two meals to hungry families through our friends at Feeding America®.

One in five American children struggles to get enough to eat. That’s why this #GivingTuesday we’ve teamed up with Feeding America, the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization — because both charity and advocacy are necessary solutions to child hunger. With just one click today, you can provide two holiday meals for families in need while at the same time urging Congress to strengthen the child nutrition programs that ensure children have access to healthy meals every day.*

Take a moment now to tell your members of Congress to pass a child nutrition bill that will close the child hunger gap and a generous member will donate two meals to families in need through Feeding America.

Generosity is enriching and results in thanksgiving to God. I thank God for you every day and your generosity that ends hunger.

If you haven’t already, I also encourage you to support our ongoing work to end hunger with a special #GivingTuesday donation to Bread for the World.

Rev. David Beckmann is the president of Bread for the World.

*Two meals is the monetary equivalent 18 cents. $1 helps provide 11 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.
