RES. 466 _______________________________________________________________________ CONCURRENT RESOLUTION Whereas bread is a gift of friendship in the United States; Whereas bread is used as a symbol of unity for families and friends; Whereas the expression ``breaking bread together'' means sharing friendship, peace, and goodwill, and the actual breaking of bread together can help restore a sense of normalcy and encourage a sense of community; Whereas bread, the staff of life, not only nourishes the body but symbolizes nourishment for the human spirit; Whereas bread is used in many cultures to commemorate milestones such as births, weddings, and deaths; Whereas bread is the most consumed of grain foods, is recognized by the United States Department of Agriculture as part of the most important food group, and plays a vital role in American diets; Whereas Americans consume an average of 60 pounds of bread annually; Whereas bread has been a staple of American diets for hundreds of years; Whereas Americans are demonstrating a new interest in artisan and home-style types of breads, increasingly found in cafes, bakeries, restaurants, and homes across the country; Whereas bread sustained the Pilgrims during their long ocean voyage to America and was used to celebrate their first harvest in the American wilderness; and Whereas bread remains an important part of the family meal when Americans celebrate Thanksgiving, and the designation of November 2002 as National Bread Month would recognize the significance of bread in American history, culture, and daily diet: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That the Congress supports the goals of National Bread Month and encourages the President to issue a proclamation calling on the people of the United States to observe such month with appropriate ceremonies and activities.
