Give in honor of someone

Celebrate a special event — such as a birthday, wedding, or anniversary — or recognize someone special while supporting Bread for the World’s work to end hunger.

Your gift is an affirmation of our shared commitment to persuade our nation’s leaders to provide adequate food and nutrition so that people most in need might receive the gift of hope and life.

Together we are helping to win changes in U.S. government policy. Our persistent and faithful advocacy has transformed the lives of millions of hungry people. In the last few decades, the world as a whole, and developing countries in particular, have seen steady but slow progress against hunger.

Have we made progress?

795 million people experience hunger every day. Hunger exists in the U.S. just as it does overseas. But in the last few decades, the world as a whole, and developing countries in particular, have seen steady but slow progress against hunger. Together, we have helped make dramatic progress toward our goal of ending hunger at home and abroad. Our persistent and faithful advocacy has transformed the lives of millions of hungry people.
