Advocates in Action: Banner Shows Importance of Federal Nutrition Programs

There are many creative Bread advocates around the country, and I would like to highlight the work of two dedicated individuals. A couple of days ago I posted a piece about a series of bulletin inserts created by Cathy Brechtelsbauer in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Today, I want to highlight the work of Carol Myers of Holland, Michigan. Carol is the creator and editor of St. Nicholas Center, which encourages people to replace Santa Claus with St. Nicholas in their Christian celebrations. She is also a member of Bread for the World's board of directors.

In consultation with board member Dave Miner, a Bread advocate in Indiana, and with the help of her graphics and web development desjgner at St. Nicholas, she produced the graphic on the left to illustrate the importance of government food-assistance programs.

The banner will be on display on Sunday, July 8, at this year's Episcopal General Convention in Indianapolis, at a table staffed by a group of Bread volunteers (led by Dave Miner).

I cropped and enlarged a couple of portions of the banner, so you can appreciate the full message.
