Basic Needs

Bread for the World Institute

Overview

It is feasible to end widespread hunger in our lifetime. Yet millions of people in the United States and around the world are hungry. We can do better.

Bread for the World Institute is the research and educational partner of Bread for the World. The Institute works to change the politics of hunger through education, research and a strategic analysis of public policies that affect hungry people.

Mission

Bread for the World Institute seeks justice for hungry people through research and education on hunger and development.

Program

Bread for the World Institute publishes an annual report on the state of world hunger. The Hunger Report informs our work monitoring the U.S. anti-hunger programs, the Millennium Challenge Corporation, progress towards the Millennium Development Goals and the effectiveness of U.S. foreign aid.

Building on the research and analysis of the Hunger Report, the Institute’s 2007 agenda will include a policy symposium on hunger and poverty in U.S. rural communities. Additionally, we will host workshops exploring the impact of federal programs being debated as a part of the 2007 farm bill reauthorization that effect hungry people.

We believe that a well educated and motivated U.S. constituency who care for hungry people will ultimately change the politics of hunger. We help U.S. citizens tell the story of hungry people in their own communities and see the connections we all have to hungry people around the world. A small investment in linking people in these communities, empowered with information and a clear sense of the policy choices facing U.S. decision-makers, will result in real progress toward ending hunger.

Impact

Bread for the World Institute’s educational outreach extends to tens of thousands of individuals and congregations, hundreds of other organizations in this country and internationally, and millions of people through press and internet outreach.
