Play bingo while you watch the presidential and vice presidential debates!

We want to elect leaders who make ending hunger and poverty a priority, so we are encouraging candidates to talk about these issues.

We invite you to watch the debates and listen if candidates address poverty and hunger.

Download and print Bread’s bingo cards with terms relating to hunger, poverty, and the work needed to end both.

Use a marker and put an X through each word or phrase you hear the candidates say. Five consecutive crosses means that you got bingo!

Play with friends or with others on Twitter by using the hashtag #IVote2EndHunger. Tag @bread4theworld if you get bingo.

A BINGO win for you is also a win for our advocacy, as hearing these words spoken means the candidates are talking about hunger and poverty – something that must be done if we’re to effectively end hunger by 2030.

Presidential and vice presidential debates will air on:

  • September 26
  • October 4 (VP debate)
  • October 9
  • October 19

All debates begin at 9 p.m. EDT and will be televised on all major networks. Join us as we play BINGO and hold the candidates accountable on addressing hunger and poverty.
