Voting to end hunger means helping children fulfill their dreams


By Rev. David Beckmann

We’ve all been asked this question before: “What do you want to be when you grow up?”

Our childhood dreams and aspirations give us hope and carry us into the future. But not all dreams come true.

Right now, you can act to empower a child to realize their God-given potential. Vote to end the hunger that prevents girls like Miriam and her brother Luke from achieving their dreams.

Good nutrition helps our children learn and grow so they can make their dreams come true. When churches, communities, and government work together, we can end the nightmare of hunger.

Elect wise leaders who will help alleviate the real struggles that too many families face every day. Bread for the World’s 2106 election platform highlights policies we want the next president and Congress to act on.

On Election Day, Nov. 8, we have an opportunity to put our faith into action and vote to end hunger. In many states, early voting has already begun. Find out about early voting and polling locations in your state. Don’t wait to vote!

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