2013 Offering of Letters

Faith UCC is a Bread for the World Covenant Church. On April 28 and May 5, fifty-one adults, youth and children wrote 91 letters to our senators and representatives, asking that a plan be developed to end hunger here and abroad, and that a balanced approach to deficit reduction include sufficient funding for programs that reduce hunger and poverty.
This year Bread for the World is an alliance partner for A Place at the Table, a feature-length documentary about the persistence of hunger in America.
Bread for the World's Biblical Reflection for this year concludes: “Even in our rapidly changing world, God’s intention for human wholeness remains. Abundance and provision are in our midst. Yet, while there is enough food in the world for everyone to eat, many of God's people do not have access to the food they need."
