Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Act Now!

July 2011

Take time to visit your senators and representative in their local offices during the summer. The most effective advocacy is an in-person meeting! Urge them to protect funding for programs for hungry people.


  • As Congress makes decisions about reducing the deficit and raising the nation’s debt ceiling, please establish a Circle of Protection around funding for programs for hungry and poor people, exempting them from budget cuts.
  • Ask your member of Congress to please take a balanced approach to reducing our deficits by considering revenues and spending cuts, and opposing any proposals that cap all federal spending.
  • You can also leave this message at their Washington offices through the Capitol Switchboard: (202) 224-3121.
