As a Christian organization grounded in our faith, Bread expects presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump to act respectfully toward each other during the election season, and promote policies that provide help and opportunity for people who struggle with hunger and poverty.

Bread’s grassroots leaders are reaching out to voters and congressional candidates across the country, focusing on 12 swing states. The organization is also using digital ads to reach 50 million voters in these same swing states.

“Ending hunger isn’t just the right thing to do; it’s politically smart,” said Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World. “Helping hungry people is a compelling political issue to voters no matter their religious or party affiliation.”

A recent survey conducted by Bread for the World found that 1 in 3 voters say they will vote for candidates who promise to make ending hunger one of their top priorities. And two-thirds of likely voters in swing states say that ending hunger should be one of the top priorities of government.
