George McGovern, Bob Dole, and Donald E. Messer share their conviction that ending hunger is a religious imperative and a human priority. Writing for congregations and individuals of faith, they appeal to the biblical, theological and ethical foundations of action against hunger. Informative, inspiring, and filled with practical suggestions and discussion questions, the book encourages personal involvement and political commitment to the cause.

Included is a chapter of dialogue between the three authors in which they address such questions as:

  1. "Why are you so committed to ending world hunger?
  2. "What are your hopes and dreams for a universal school lunch program?
  3. "Critics and skeptics question whether programs like the McGovern-Dole initiative are too dependant on surplus agricultural commodities, and, therefore, not sustainable. How do you respond?"
