TEll Congress:

Support Global Food Aid

Over the last two years, we have seen a rise in extreme hunger and humanitarian organizations have seen demand for their programs skyrocket. The events in Ukraine, including the recent suspension of the Black Sea Grain Initiative, threaten to further increase food insecurity and global instability. Without considerable supplemental government funding, tens of millions of people worldwide could slip further into crisis levels of hunger.

Ask your Members of Congress to support supplemental funding for international food assistance today.

Ask Your Members of Congress to Support International School Meals

The United States has a long legacy of leading the global fight against hunger through international school meals programs like the George McGovern-Robert Dole International Food for Education and Child Program. Since July, there have been ongoing efforts in Congress to weaken or eliminate food assistance programs like McGovern-Dole. We cannot afford to lose this support and need your help to make sure there is robust government funding for the McGovern-Dole Program. 

Please act now and sign this letter to your Members of Congress.

Ask Your Representative to Support the Farm Bill

The Farm Bill is a vital tool that not only affects agriculture in the United States but plays a major role in fighting hunger and malnutrition abroad. Support for the 2023 Farm Bill and its international food aid programs will save millions of lives and reduce hunger and instability across the world.

Send a letter to your Members of Congress and ask them to support the reauthorization of the 2023 Farm Bill to support global hunger relief.
