We are so close to getting the Global Food Security Act passed into law! The House Foreign Affairs Committee has just passed the Senate’s version of the Global Food Security Act (S. 1252), and now it’s time for the House to vote.

Call (800-826-3688) or email your representative today. Urge them to support the Global Food Security Act (S. 1252)!

Both chambers of Congress have passed their own versions of the Global Food Security Act. However, in order for the act to become law — and for Feed the Future to become a permanent program — the House must pass S. 1252, the Senate’s version.

This is the final push to enact this legislation, which will affect millions of hungry people around the world. Call (800-826-3688) or email your representative today and urge them to pass the Global Food Security Act (S. 1252).

Your faithful advocacy has gotten us this far. Call (800-826-3688) or email your representative today, and help push the Global Food Security Act of 2016 past the finish line!
