:
Have faith. End hunger.


Ending hunger is a moral imperative that does not stand alone. Hunger thrives on the racial, social, and economic inequalities that are eating away at the soul of our nation and pulling us apart. But ending hunger could now become the cause that brings us together across partisan lines to make our economy include everyone and work for everybody.


The goal of ending hunger nationwide is not only noble but easily within reach. Taking up this goal could give us a corrective lens, a lens of hope for seeing ourselves and our country in a new way. It could also give us better vision for helping the world overcome extreme hunger and poverty.


Our failure to speak and write to members of Congress about hunger consigns millions of people here and abroad to diminished lives and premature death, so it is a silence that kills. We can break that silence by urging the nation's leaders to help end hunger and humanize our economy.


This book addresses all people of goodwill, including agnostics and atheists, but with a special word of concern for religious people-Christians in particular-who help through charity, but neglect to use the power of their citizenship against hunger.

Arthur Simon

Arthur Simon is the founder and president emeritus of Bread for the World, the nation's foremost citizens lobby on hunger. As a Lutheran pastor on New York's Lower East Side, he brought together Catholics and Protestants to organize a public outcry against hunger. His book, Bread for the World, won the national Religious Book Award in 1976 and was described by the late Nobel economist, Gunnar Myrdal, as "a clear and convincing" analysis of world hunger. In 1990 Simon received a presidential award for lifetime achievement against hunger.
