Washington, D.C. – Bread for the World today released the following statement on President Trump’s decision to end negotiations on a comprehensive COVID relief bill until after the election. The statement can be attributed to Rev. Eugene Cho, president and CEO of Bread for the World:
“We are facing two unprecedented crises – a global pandemic and a global hunger crisis. In the U.S., 1 in 3 families with children do not have enough food to eat, with nearly 40 percent of Black and Latino families with children struggling to put food on the table. Worldwide, more than 270 million people are on the brink of starvation. The last comprehensive COVID relief bill was passed by the House in May. Since that time hunger has risen to historic levels. We urge the White House and Congress to resume negotiations and pass a comprehensive COVID relief package that includes assistance for families struggling with hunger before the elections. God calls on us to care for our neighbors in need (Matthew 25:35, 40). Children and families are hungry right now and cannot wait.”
Climate Change Worsens Hunger in Latino/a Communities
Climate change threatens the traditions and lifestyles of Indigenous people.
While climate change impacts everyone, regardless of race, policies and practices around climate have historically discriminated against and excluded people of color.
“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.
