Watch David Beckmann on KNME-Channel 5 Tomorrow

Bread for the World President Rev. David Beckmann will appear on nationwide television Friday, July 16, in the public affairs show, “Need to Know.” 

In Albuquerque and central and northern New Mexico, the program will air on KNME Channel 5 at 8:00 p.m. Mountain Time.

For our friends in Las Cruces and southern New Mexico, the program will air on KCOS-TV (El Paso) at 7:30 Mountain Time

Jon Meacham, program host and editor of Newsweek, interviewed David on the silent epidemic of malnutrition. David appears in the second segment of the show.

Here's a note from Adlai Amor, Bread's Director of Communications:
I hope the interview will move you to write a letter to your member of Congress to ensure that our children receive better nutrition.
As you may know, nearly one in four children suffers from hunger in our country. Congress needs to fully fund the additional investments for the Child Nutrition Act. The programs authorized by this law—school lunches and breakfasts, summer feeding programs, and the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program—are critical to ending childhood hunger.
