Listen: Interview with Ched Myers
Urge your member of Congress to form a circle of protection around funding for programs vital to hungry and poor people.
- Congress must take a holistic approach to addressing the deficit and include some additional tax revenue rather than a cuts-only approach.
- Poverty-focused development assistance to poor countries builds future trade partners by helping people lift themselves out of hunger and poverty.
- Domestic anti-hunger and anti-poverty programs such as SNAP, WIC, and the Earned Income Tax Credit effectively reduce hunger and help families move out of poverty.
