Washington, D.C.– As Congress considers passing another short-term deal to keep the government open, Bread for the World today urged lawmakers to address four issues that have a significant impact on people who struggle with hunger and poverty.
Bread believes that any continuing resolution passed by Congress must:
Increase funding for non-military programs
Enact bipartisan legislation that provides Dreamers with a pathway to citizenship and keeps immigrant families together.
Fully fund and reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).
Provide disaster relief for Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Texas, Florida, and California.
“We pray that our nation’s leaders can reach an agreement and approve these four measures,” Beckmann said.
Afghanistan would be considered likely to have high rates of hunger because at least two of the major causes of global hunger affect it—armed conflict and fragile governmental institutions.
Malnutrition is responsible for nearly half of all preventable deaths among children under 5. Every year, the world loses hundreds of thousands of young children and babies to hunger-related causes.
Bread for the World is calling on the Biden-Harris administration and Congress to build a better 1,000-Days infrastructure in the United States.
“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 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.
