HungerFast.org is a campaign of those committed to fasting and prayer to protect vulnerable people from budget cuts that lack conscience. Join us!

In 1993, Congressman Tony Hall fasted for 22 days in response to budget cuts that would have had a devastating impact on poor people at home and around the world. Today, nearly 20 years later, Tony Hall is fasting again, provoked by similar budget cuts currently under consideration by Congress. Click here to join him in fasting and prayer.

The Fast Is Ending, But the Movement Is Just Getting Started | Tony Hall

Back in 1993, as a Member of Congress, I went on a 22 day fast to protest the lack of conscience of the U.S. Congress towards poor and hungry people. Now, almost twenty years later, the stakes are even higher. That’s why on March 28, 2011 — almost one month ago — I stopped eating and ...

An Assault Against the Very People God Instructs Us to Protect | Dave Miner

I did not eat, at all, last week. Right now our nation is in the middle of important discussions about how to cut its deficits.
