Bread for the World welcomes all people—whoever they are and wherever they are on their journey. We celebrate the gifts of God that empower us to engage boldly in the struggles of life and to care for others with love, justice, and compassion.
We value and embrace differences.
We foster an environment of diversity and welcome opportunities to become more inclusive.
We work to strengthen the presence and participation of diverse constituencies in our office, our outreach, and all of our work.
We are moved by God’s grace in Jesus Christ to work for justice for hungry and poor people. They may be in the next house or in the next country. No matter where they live, whoever they may be, they are our neighbors. We affirm our mission to work by God’s grace with and for our neighbors.
Bread for the World members write personal letters and emails and meet with our members of Congress. Working through our churches, campuses, and other organizations, we engage more people in advocacy.
Each year, Bread for the World invites churches across the country to take up a nationwide Offering of Letters to Congress on an issue that is important to hungry and poor people.
As a non-profit, Bread for the World works in a bipartisan way. Our network of thousands of individual members, churches, and denominations ensures Bread’s presence in all U.S. congressional districts.
Together, we build the political commitment needed to overcome hunger and poverty.
