Washington, D.C. – Bread for the World today welcomed passage of the stopgap spending bill to keep the government funded through December 11. The bill includes a provision that extends the Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer Program (P-EBT) for a full year and expands it to include Puerto Rico and the U.S. territories. President Trump signed the legislation into law early this morning. The following statement can be attributed to Rev. Eugene Cho, president and CEO of Bread for the World:
“Bread for the World is thankful Congress passed and the president signed the stopgap spending bill. The bill provides $8 billion in nutrition assistance for children and families who struggle with hunger and poverty due to COVID-19 and expands and extends the Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer Program (P-EBT). P-EBT enables parents to buy groceries to cover the cost of school breakfasts and lunches their children miss because schools are closed. Since its implementation, P-EBT has kept millions of children out of hunger. We especially want to thank Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader McConnell for including the measure in the bill.”

“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in faith.” These words from Colossians 2:6 remind us of the faith that is active in love for our neighbors.
The Bible on...
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is designed to respond to changes in need, making it well suited to respond to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bread for the World and its partners are asking Congress to provide $200 million for global nutrition.
In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
