By focusing resources and policies on the right programs, Congress has the power to make hunger a problem of the past. Now, they need to know hunger is important to you. Hunger is a profoundly political issue and should be a top concern of our federal government. Your voice has the power to influence efforts and votes.
Write to Congress
Personalized letters and emails stand out. They tell senators and representatives that you, as a constituent, really care about an issue. Write to your legislators about these issues that are currently moving in Congress and/or in the administration.
Urge your representative to cosponsor the Global Food Security Act (H.R. 8446). The legislation helps low-income countries to boost economic growth through agriculture development and improve nutrition, especially among women and children.
Federal nutrition programs provide roughly 10 times as much food assistance as private churches and charities combined.
