By Rev. David Beckmann

I believe in God’s vision of a world where all people “will hunger no more” (Revelation 7:16). Families, churches, and businesses all need to do their part to end hunger. It is crucial that our government is no exception. 

Amid these turbulent times, we must seek to love our neighbors and to remind Congress to do the same. Your Bread for the World membership will fuel our work to urge Congress to propose a federal budget that will keep us on track to end hunger by 2030.

Our collective advocacy reminds Congress to remember the people impacted by their decisions -- people like Mercedita Cubar, a Filipino farmer who is learning to adapt her crops to rapidly changing weather patterns thanks to U.S. development assistance.

Our advocacy is paying off, and there is a growing recognition that ending hunger and extreme poverty by 2030 is achievable. More than ever we need your support. Become a member today, and join Christians across the country committed to ending hunger.

Rev. David Beckmann is president of Bread for the World.

Our advocacy is paying off, and there is a growing recognition that ending hunger and extreme poverty by 2030 is achievable.
