Bread for the World, its members, and partners are working to make hunger, poverty, and opportunity a priority for candidates. We are moved by God’s grace in Jesus Christ to work for justice for hungry people in our country and around the world. We believe that ending hunger by 2030 is a goal within reach, and we are taking action because our children, our neighbors—real people—are suffering. We want candidates to know that we will vote to end hunger.

One of the best times to raise the issues of hunger and poverty is during election campaigns.
During these periods, current and potential office holders are listening the most and are making and establishing promises, priorities, and plans.
This year, we can elect leaders who will pass laws, fund programs, and create policy to put our nation and the world on track to end hunger by 2030—an outcome that is achievable, if our elected leaders make ending hunger a priority.
Hunger is not a partisan issue. That is why Bread works with our nation’s leaders—whoever they may be—in a bipartisan manner.

You can help end hunger by pushing this message out to candidates in the congressional and presidential elections.
Some ways to get involved are:
Whether during public forums, town hall meetings, or a meeting at a candidate's office, you can engage all candidates on hunger in the elections. In most cases, that will be a candidate from each of the major parties. It is important to engage candidates on both sides so that regardless of who wins, there is a relationship established with the office-holder.
We want you to ask candidates the following questions:
After meeting with a candidate, please let us know how it went by emailing email@example.com. This will help Bread for the World track the number of candidates who are being engaged.
Additionally, writing letters to the editor of your local newspaper and posting your experience on social media will publicize your efforts.
Engage candidates in your state/district on hunger and poverty using our elections resources. They include:
