2017 Offering of Letters: Doing Our Part to End Hunger

Toolkits to help congregations and other faith communities participate in Bread for the World’s 2017 Offering of Letters, Doing Our Part to End Hunger, will be available in late February

(Stay tuned for details of an Offering of Letters workshop in Albuquerque and possibly another one in Santa Fe sometime in March).  

The Offering of Letters is focused on urging members of Congress to make funding decisions that put our country and the world on track toward ending hunger. We want Congress to fund and protect programs such as SNAP, WIC, international poverty focused development assistance, and tax credits for low-income workers.

The 2017 toolkit for coordinators of letter-writing events will contain many of the same items that past years’ kits have contained — how-to-information on planning an event, an explanation of the issue, items to help promote your event, videos to show during a presentation, a sample PowerPoint presentation, and more.

The Offering of Letters content will be on the Bread for the World website. 

In addition, materials will be available in Spanish.

You can order: online from the Bread Store
by calling 800/822-7323, ext. 1072
by emailing
