Building the political will to get the U.S. government to do its part in ending hunger takes the work of many individuals and organizations. That’s why Bread for the World joins with partners, works in coalitions, and helps to build up the advocacy capacity of other organizations. Our overall goal is to end hunger rather than building up our own organization.
Bread for the World has deep connections to church bodies and agencies across U.S. Christianity. We work with other Christian or faith-based organizations in Washington, D.C., and in communities across the country. Below is a sample of the Christian churches and organizations we work with on a regular basis.
