The 2019 Sunshine Summit to End Hunger, presented by the Tampa Bay Network to End Hunger, is in partnership with Bread for the World and Florida Impact. Thank you to our wonderful partners!
Bread for the World
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 at home and far beyond where we live. Bread equips people to write personal letters and emails, meet with their members of Congress, and to work with others to end hunger. Working through churches, campuses, and other organizations, we engage people in organized advocacy.

Florida Impact’s mission for the last four decades has been dedicated to securing economic justice in Florida by reducing hunger and poverty. We mobilize communities to increase access to federal food, nutrition, and other economic support programs through strategic program outreach, technical assistance and advocacy. We work to optimize these resources in the hands of community-based nonprofits serving at-risk children.
Florida Impact also has a history of successfully advocating for policy changes, including the mandate for statewide School Breakfast Programs and changes to Summer Nutrition programs to locate food sites closer to kids in need. Other advocacy and policy work successes have involved assistance to homeless families, affordable housing, food stamps for legal immigrants, transportation funding for food banks, and establishment of the food stamp hotline.
