We would like to recognize and honor the life of Dr. Bob Herron, who passed away on August 1. An engaged advocate for Bread for the World, he spent much of his time and energy fighting hunger. He presented at our 2014 Faith and Health Summit in a session designed to train attendees on how to advocate for healthier policies. Bob had an unassuming, compassionate, and centered presence that he used for the good of his community and those around the world that he sought to impact for the better.
We pray for comfort for his family, and are thankful to have worked with him. May all of us be inspired by his life to continue to be engaged in advocating for just policies, and working to eradicate hunger and injustice however we can.
