Share Your Story

We believe that hunger is not a faceless issue described in statistics and experienced by unknown millions in far-away places. Hunger is real and is a daily part of life for individuals next door and on the next continent, all of whom were created in the image of God.

Bread would like to hear your story and share it so people can understand the real-life struggle of hunger and take action. These and similar types of stories are welcome:

  • how hunger or poverty affects you as an individual or family
  • why working in advocacy to end hunger is important to you
  • how your church or faith community is working to end hunger

By submitting your story, you give Bread for the World permission to verify your story, to publish it, and to perhaps expand the story so that it can be shared with a wider public. We will use only your first name and last initial and town or city and state, unless you explicitly state otherwise. If you have a photo to go with your story (the higher the resolution, the better), please attach it or send it by email to editor@bread.org.
