The great news is…
Thanks to your phone calls and emails, several important legislative priorities — including the America Gives More Act tax deductions for donors and an increase in The Emergency Food Assistance Program Storage and Distribution funds — are part of two massive, end of year legislative packages.
But we still need your help. TODAY.
Our friends at Feeding America have told us that the votes in the House of Representatives may be close. So we need to mobilize all anti-hunger advocates to make some quick phone calls today in support of these packages and seal the deal.
It’s quick and easy – here’s what to do:
- Dial the toll free number 1-888-398-8702 and listen to the pre-recorded message.
- Enter your zip code when asked. Then listen to the message and press 1 or 2 to connect to one of your members of Congress (the recording will tell you which member you are calling). *Be sure to dial back in so you talk to both of your Senators and your Representative.
- Once someone picks up the phone (or leave a message), tell them your name, the name of your home town and tell them you are calling about the omnibus spending package and tax extenders. Then deliver a message like this:
As my member of Congress, I am calling today to ask that [SENATOR OR REP. NAME] please vote for the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015 and the omnibus spending package. Both of these bills would help our local food bank secure more donations and help distribute more food to people in our community. Thank you for your time.
Thank you for taking the time to be an anti-hunger advocate today!
