Washington, D.C. –The 11th Annual Gala to End Hunger will be held on Monday, Nov. 17 at the Metropolitan Club in New York City. Hosted by Bread for the World, Bread for the World Institute, and The Alliance to End Hunger, the gala will focus on the growing global commitment to eradicate hunger and poverty.
“It is important to highlight the partnerships and victories that we have had in our fight to end hunger at home and abroad,” said Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World. “Since 1990, as the number of people living in extreme poverty has been cut in half, and as fewer children are going to bed hungry, the possibility of a hunger free world can be seen on the horizon.”
Bread for the World plays a key role in the progress against hunger by inspiring people of faith to meet with and write personal letters and emails to their members of Congress.
The Alliance to End Hunger develops partnerships among its members, facilitates the formation of hunger-free communities across the United States, builds political commitment among our leaders, and connects groups working to end hunger.
The gala’s program will feature an interview of Dr. Jim Yong Kim, president of the World Bank Group, by Beckmann. Among the goals the World Bank set after Kim became president is ending extreme poverty by 2030.
“This year’s Gala to End Hunger celebrates our past achievements and prepares us for the task of writing hunger into history by 2030. It will be an inspirational and informative evening that will help support the vital work that we do,” concluded Beckmann.

Conflict is a main driver of the recent increase in hunger around the world and of forced migration. Hunger also contributes to conflict.
“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.
