Bread for the World Stories

In our advocacy, we remain mindful that our efforts touch individuals around the world. We are moved by God’s grace in Jesus Christ — someone who loved to tell stories himself — to seek justice for people who are hungry.

Feel free to retell or reprint these stories in your publication, blog, or social media. You may also use them to inspire and motivate your congregation or other group to join our effort to end hunger and poverty.
