Bread for the World 

Over 31,000 children will die today in developing countries, half of them from hunger-related causes. One possible reaction is despair and resignation - yet experts have told us for 40 years that the end to widespread hunger is within our grasp. Effective solutions are complex and must include more than charity. For over 30 years, Bread for the World has been a Christian voice urging Congress to adopt policies that will help end the tragedy of extreme poverty and hunger.

The local chapter is an interfaith group that meets monthly for a brown-bag lunch. Our meetings include worship, study of hunger and poverty issues, and some type of action – usually letter-writing, but sometimes a decision to make phone calls, or a group visit to our Representative’s office. We would love to have you join us.


When We Meet

The first Tuesday of each month from 11:30 to 1 p.m., rotating our meeting place among the members’ various Edwardsville and Glen Carbon churches.
