Act Now: Preserve Funding for Hungry People


Call-congress-large-blog

Your members of Congress are writing the farm bill right now and they need to hear from you! SNAP (formerly food stamps) and international food aid are critical programs governed by the farm bill. Both are at risk of devastating cuts.

Raise your voice and urge your members of Congress to ensure a place at the table for all God’s people. Tell them to:

  1. Protect and strengthen SNAP. SNAP effectively and efficiently helps 47 million low-income Americans put food on the table. As unemployment and poverty have remained high, the number of families at risk of hunger has not increased since 2008.
  1. Improve international food aid in ways that make the program more efficient while also targeting the nutritional needs of women and children in the 1,000-day window from pregnancy to age 2. The emergency food aid program, Food for Peace, reached over 53 million people last year.

Cuts to these programs will mean no food on the table for millions of our brothers and sisters. Call your senators and representative today at 1-800-326-4941 or send them an email.

Dear Semator, I am asking you to take great care of the poor people in Indiana who need help to provide food for themselves and others. Please continue with the SNAP program which provides assistance for our people living in poverty. And as far as possible continue to assist poor poeple throughout the world. We have so much and others have so little due to the violence produced by war and unrest in their countries. Thank you for the good you do.
