AARP cites Bread as one of the 'Heroes Against Hunger in Maine'

Bread for the World partners formally  with many organizations around the country (as in the Circle of Protection and the Modernizing Foreign Assistance Network).  Sometimes there are those unspoken informal networking opportunities.  Take, for example, this note, entitled Heroes Against Hunger in Maine, which was posted in the AARP Maine Web site on August, 23, 2012:  
"Hunger is a problem that affects so many around the world, but it can be hard to fathom how many people in the United States endure hunger despite its reputation for being one of the wealthiest nations in the world. The numbers can be overwhelming. Here in Maine, we are fortunate to have organizations like Good Shepherd Food Bank and Bread for the World who are working toward meaningful solutions."
Incidentally, AARP and the AARP Foundation are involved in many other direct ways to address hunger.  Learn more about the organization's campaign to tackle hunger proactively through a three-pronged approach: Lend a Hand, Find Help, and Learn More.  Among the issues raised by AARP in the articles on its Web site are a proposal to cut the budget for home-delivered meals in Massachusetts, 6 out of 10 seniors in Ohio who qualify for Food Stamps don't enroll, and a meal program that benefits both students and seniors in Washington, D.C.
