Bread.Org aims to provide Bread for the World and End Hunger.
Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad. By changing policies, programs and conditions that allow hunger and poverty to persist, they provide help and opportunity far beyond the communities where we live. Bread for the World is a 501(c)4 organization.

From this site, Bread.Org shares the facts:
“In 2005, the latest year for which data are available, 1.4 billion people in developing countries lived in extreme poverty—on less than $1.25 a day—down from 1.9 billion in 1981.
In the United States, 14.6 percent of households struggle to put food on the table. Nearly one in four children is at risk of hunger.
We can end hunger in our time. Everyone, including government, must do their part.
By making our voices heard in Congress, we make our laws more fair and compassionate to people in need.
The world is facing a hunger crisis unlike anything it has seen in more than 50 years. Worldwide, 1.4 billion people live in extreme poverty.”
