Reflections on Building the Movement to End Hunger: A Breakfast with Art Simon
Westminster Presbyterian Church

Art Simon

Rev. Art Simon, the founder and president emeritus of Bread for the World, will share the surprising story of how God uses ordinary people to make an extraordinary difference in the lives of hungry people. Hear him talk about his new book The Rising of Bread for the World: An Outcry of Citizens Against Hunger and reflect of his decades of advocacy for hungry people.

With both humor and insight, Art recounts how he and his older brother Paul, the late renowned Senator from Illinois, grew up and began their remarkable careers. In the 1970s, Art served as a Lutheran pastor in New York’s Lower East Side.  He brought together Catholics and Protestants in an organized effort to urge Congress to address the root causes of hunger.  Today, 35 years later, Bread for the World is the nation’s foremost Christian voice against hunger.

He’ll share this amazing story—and talk about why urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad is as important now as ever.
