The Senate will vote on a budget resolution this week that will dramatically increase hunger and poverty in the United States and around the world. Don’t let this happen.

Call (800-826-3688) or email your senators today. Tell your senators to vote NO on Senate Concurrent Resolution 25.

The budget resolution will cut yearly spending by $5.1 trillion over the next 10 years risking deep cuts to programs like Women, Children, and Infants (WIC), summer meals, global nutrition, and international development. Those who rely on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Medicaid could also risk the loss of their safety net if the resolution passes.

We need you to urge Congress to REJECT a budget that would make it harder to end hunger by 2030. Call (800-826-3688) or email your senators and tell them to vote NO on Senate Concurrent Resolution 25.
