The Biblical Basis for Advocacy to End Hunger

July 6, 2015

This brochure presents the broad themes from the Bible that guide the mission of Bread for the World in working to end hunger.

In addition to the Bible verses and passages cited here, there are many other references to people who are poor and hungry in the Bible, and Jesus spoke many times about caring for other people.

As you consider the actions you might take in advocating for an end to hunger, you are invited to find inspiration or motivation in a favorite Bible story or verse or to explore the Bible on your own.

Use this brochure as a guide for finding your own basis as a Christian for answering this call.
