Bread for the World Sunday
We join thousands of other
Christians across the country
as we lift up our voices with
hungry people.
Through prayers for hungry
people and for our nation’s
leaders, we commit ourselves
to the fight against hunger and
poverty in our country and
around the world.
The Face of Hunger
in a World of Plenty
Nearly 16,000 children
die every day from
hunger-related causes.
That’s one child every
five seconds.
In developing nations,
one out of four people
lives in extreme
poverty—on less than
$1.25 a day.
In the United States, one
in five children lives in a
family that struggles to
put food on the table.
Hunger is a Fixable Problem
Charity alone is simply
not a realistic solution.
Essential federal nutrition
assistance programs
must be protected and
These programs are the
country’s true first line of
defense against hunger.
God’s Heart for
Hungry People
What good is it, my brothers, if
someone says he has faith but
does not have works? Can that
faith save him?
If a brother or sister is poorly
clothed and lacking in daily food,
and one of you says to them,
“Go in peace, be warmed and
filled,” without giving them the
things needed for the body, what
good is that? So also faith by
itself, if it does not have works,
is dead.
But someone will say, “You have
faith and I have works.” Show
me your faith apart from your
works, and I will show you my
faith by my works.
—James 2:14-18
God’s Heart for Hungry People
Jesus said to them,
“For I was hungry and you gave me food,
I was thirsty and you gave me
something to drink,
I was a stranger and you welcomed me,
I was naked and you gave me clothing,
I was sick and you took care of me,
I was in prison and you visited me.”
—Matthew 25:35-36
Jesus Calls Us
We have the knowledge and
resources to end widespread
As followers of Jesus Christ,
we listen to God’s voice and
use our own voices to speak
up for an end to hunger.
As God’s hands and feet in
the world, we can work
toward a community in which
every person has an equal
opportunity to thrive.
Our Action to End Hunger
We can use our voices to challenge
our nation’s decision makers to
change laws and structures that
keep people vulnerable.
Bread for the World equips and
inspires its members to meet with,
call, and write personal letters and

Our Mission

nation’s decision
makers to end hunger
at home and abroad.
