Write to Congress

Your letters are needed this year more than ever. We must urge our congressional leaders to save a prominent place for hungry people at the table of our national priorities. If we ignore the deficit-reduction debates, we could easily lose the gains we have made over the years.

Thus, we are asking Congress to ensure a place at the table for hungry and poor people by protecting programs vital to them. Our letters will ask members of Congress to focus on three issues:

  1. Protecting anti-hunger and anti-poverty programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps), the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), and poverty-focused development assistance (PFDA).
  2. Making permanent the current tax credits for poor families: the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and the Child Tax Credit (CTC).
  3. Raising adequate revenue to end hunger.

Our goal is to send at least 250,000 letters to Congress on these issues. Use the links below to email your senators and representatives.
