Our Founder and Executive Director, Rev. Dr. Heber Brown, III was recently elected to the board of Bread For The World, a Christian advocacy organization that “educates and equips people to advocate for policies and programs that can help end hunger in the U.S. and around the world.” He attended his first board meeting of this organization in March 2023. As part of the experience, board members discussed and learned more about the Farm bill. (Click here to learn more about the Farm bill). After learning together, board members went to Capitol Hill to meet with United States Senators (or their staff) in order to discuss how the next Farm Bill can help to co-create a more just food system in the United States while also supporting farmers and prioritizing historically marginalized populations.
