What it is:
Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation's decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad. God's grace in Jesus Christ moves us to help our neighbors, whether they live in the next house, the next state, or the next continent. By changing policies, programs, and conditions that allow hunger and poverty to persist, we provide help and opportunity far beyond the communities where we live. We can end hunger in our time. Everyone, including our govern-ment, must do their part. With the stroke of a pen, policies are made that redirect millions of dollars and affect millions of lives. By making our voices heard in Congress, we make our nation's laws more fair and compassionate to people in need.
How you can help:
- Write 3 letters to your Congressional members each year as part of Bread's Offering of Letters at Trinity
- Sign up for Bread's action alert emails, letting you know when critical legislation is heading to the Congressional floor so that you can call or email your Congressional members and encourage them to vote in a way that makes it possible for poor and hungry people to lift themselves out of poverty
The Trinity Connection:
