During the traditional seder, we join together and drink four cups of wine: a cup for each of the promises of

freedom God made to the Israelites as God led them out of bondage. Today we join together and make four

new promises — promises not about breaking the shackles of Egyptian slavery, but about breaking the bonds

of hunger. We do so standing together and calling for a better tomorrow, one in which we are all blessed to

have bountiful and nutritious food for our families, our neighbors, our friends, and for all Americans.


1. We will work to ensure that everyone has access to enough nutritious food.

2. We will learn why—in a nation of such abundance—there are still millions of people who struggle with hunger.

3. We will urge our elected officials and community leaders to support effective public policies and

prioritize ending hunger.

4. We will create a world where all Americans and all people are free from hunger.
