Bread for the World – Offering of Letters
An annual campaign
Bread for the World Offering of Letters is an opportunity to advocate for key federal funding and policies that help support people experiencing hunger and/or food insecurity. This annual campaign engages churches, campuses and other faith communities throughout the United States in writing letters to Congress. FUMC’s “Mind the Gap” is a study and advocacy group focused on the core causes and solutions to food insecurity in our community. With the support of FUMC’s Leadership Council Mind the Gap will lead our church’s initial Offering of Letters in the fall of 2017 with a goal of sending 250 letters or emails by December 1, 2017.
