Bread.org is another organization that is working to end hunger. Interestingly enough they advocate writing to our Senators and Representatives about specific legislation such as the farm bill, the budget, etc. Check out their site.
I haven’t researched percentage of donation that actually goes to the poor, but how much does it cost to write a letter to your congressman?
