We are overjoyed by the support shown for the Global Food Security Act (H.R. 1567) in the House of Representatives this week. Thanks to YOU, 370 of your representatives voted “yes” in support of efforts by the U.S. government for food security around the world!

Find out if your representative supported the Global Food Security Act in this week’s vote.

Everybody always appreciates being thanked, and doing so closes the loop on your earlier advocacy. If your representative voted “yes,” call (800-826-3688) them to say thanks for supporting the Global Food Security Act (H.R. 1567).

If your representative did not vote “yes,” get in contact anyway. Call (800-826-3688) them to say that global food security is important to you.

There is still work to do on this bill in the Senate, but we are getting closer to the Global Food Security Act becoming law. Tell your representative that their support has brought us one step closer to ending global hunger, malnutrition, and extreme poverty.
