HAVE FAITH. END HUNGER.
All Saints is a member-church in Bread for the World, a Christian citizens’ movement, which lobbies our nation’s decision makers for public policies that serve the needs of hungry and poor people in the U.S. and worldwide. Each year, Bread for the World conducts an Offering of Letters campaign, inviting members to communicate with their congressional representatives about a specific issue or piece of legislation.
“BETTER NUTRITION, BETTER TOMORROW” BREAD FOR THE WORLD OFFERING OF LETTERS
Hunger and extreme poverty rates have been nearly cut in half in the last 30 years
thanks to the promotion of global nutrition programs. A strong commitment from the U.S. has been a big part of this success.
Much has been accomplished, but we still have a long way to go.
The weekend of May 4/5, 2019, All Saints participated in the 2019 Bread for the World Offering of Letters – an opportunity for people of faith to communicate with our legislators in Washington about hunger and poverty related issues. This year’s message is “Better Nutrition, Better Tomorrow.” Information is available about Bread for the World, the issues at hand, and how you can contact your elected officials. You are invited to stop by the display in the Gathering Space after Mass and check it out. Information will continue to be available through the Easter Season at the Justice & Service display in the weeks to come.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were unable to participate in the 2020 Offering of Letters. Our hopes are high for 2021.
You can make a difference.
