We have hope for our children’s future, and we know that when we invest in our children’s health as they are growing up, it will pay huge rewards for the future of our children and our nation. That is why we (through Congress) established food stamps (now the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) to help low-income families with their food budgets; it’s why we established the Women, Infants and Children program to help needy mothers with food for their infants and children under age 5; and it’s why we established the National School Lunch Program to help feed school children who didn’t get enough food at home. All of these programs are needed to assist children with their academic achievement as well as their physical development and mental health. These three laws provide about 95 percent of the help that the needy of our country receive. But we still have hungry families!

At this workshop, will be discussing U.S. government programs, especially those relating to children's health and nutrition.

Bread for the World is a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad. By changing policies, programs and conditions that allow hunger and poverty to persist, we provide help and opportunity far beyond the communities in which we live.
