Bread for the World, its members, and partners are working to make hunger, poverty, and opportunity a priority for candidates.
We are moved by God’s grace in Jesus Christ to work for justice for hungry people in our country and around the world. We believe that ending hunger by 2030 is a goal within reach, and we are taking action because our children, our neighbors—real people—are suffering. We want candidates to know that we will vote to end hunger.
We want candidates to know that we will vote to end hunger. To learn more about early voting, your registration status, and polling locations in your area, visit vote.org.
One of the best times to raise the issues of hunger and poverty is during election campaigns. During these periods, current and potential office holders are listening the most and are making and establishing promises, priorities, and plans.
The 2018 midterm elections are critical in our work. This year, we can elect leaders who will pass laws, fund programs, and create policy to put our nation and the world on track to end hunger by 2030—an outcome that is achievable, if our elected leaders make ending hunger a priority.
Hunger is not a partisan issue. That is why Bread works with our nation’s leaders—whoever they may be—in a bipartisan manner. Bread does not endorse any candidate or political party.
As part of our I Vote to End Hunger strategy, Bread needs you to be part of this campaign and push this message out to candidates in the congressional elections. You can join our campaign:
Whether during public forums, town hall meetings, or a meeting at a candidate's office, you can engage all candidates on hunger in the 2018 midterm elections. In most cases, that will be a candidate from each of the major parties. It is important to engage candidates on both sides so that regardless of who wins, there is a relationship established with the office-holder.
We want you to ask candidates the following questions:
After meeting with a candidate, please let us know how it went by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. This will help Bread for the World track the number of candidates who are being engaged.
Additionally, writing letters to the editor of your local newspaper and posting your experience on social media will publicize your efforts.
If you have any questions or need support with elections, please contact us by email or 202-639-9400.
Engage candidates in your state/district on hunger using our elections resources. They include:
"As a Christian, I believe we have a moral responsibility to ensure our neighbors don't go hungry and that everyone has the dignity of work"
