Bread For The World is a national 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, we provide help and opportunity far beyond the communities in which we live.
By using hunger education and legislative action,
this non-partisan citizens movement of 55,000 people of faith, including 2500 churches helps hungry people by writing,
calling and visiting our nation's decision-makers about legislation that addresses hunger in our communities and around the
world. This outpouring of concern helps advance justice for hungry people and wins hundreds of millions of dollars each year
for anti-poverty efforts. To learn more about Bread For The World, click here.
Local groups of Bread For The World are established with the same
boundries as Congressional Districts. In southeast Michigan, these local Bread For The World groups coordinate their activities
through the Metro Detroit Council.
Annual activities of the Council include an annual Offering of Letters
legislative issue training seminar in February.
