The “Offering of Letters” is sponsored by the Bread for the World (BFW) organization. BFW is a well-known and established collective Christian voice urging Congress to end hunger at home and abroad. Bread for the World is endorsed by the PC(USA). The PC(USA) encourages participation in the “offering of letters” as a means for Hunger Action Congregations, such as ours, to demonstrate “public policy witness” to combat hunger in the U.S. and around the world.
This year’s “Offering of Letters” campaign seeks increased funding for both domestic and international programs. In the U.S., it urges expanding and seeking additional funding for the summer Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) program, which provides funding for low-income families who cannot access a summer meals feeding site to obtain food (in the U.S. of the 22 million schoolchildren who receive meals during the school year, only 3.7 million benefit from summer nutrition programs). Overseas, this year’s effort advocates for increased funding for global nutrition programs (22% or 149 million children in the world suffer from malnutrition and are not growing as they should).
