Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Pope Francis

Child_eating_egg"[H]unger and malnutrition can never be considered a normal occurrence that we should be become used to, as if it were part of the system. Something must change in ourselves, in our minds, in our societies."

—Pope Francis in a World Food Day message to the director general of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization.












The budget decisions before Congress will affect people struggling with hunger for years to come. Call your members of Congress today and tell them to work to pass a moral, responsible budget that replaces sequestration with a balanced plan that won't increase hunger and poverty. Use our toll-free number (1-800-826-3688) or send an email.
