Advocacy


Using your voice to help others.

When you speak out, you use your voice to urge your elected officials to do their part to help end hunger. Decisions made by our elected officials have a huge impact both on the supply of food available to give to people in need and on the demand for charitable food assistance.

Take Action Now! 

Our country is still reeling from an unprecedented hunger crisis. 

Congress has passed temporary measures to provide families with more food each month and cut child poverty in half by expanding the Child Tax Credit. But these measures are set to expire soon, and kids and families will lose the meals keeping them fed. Tell Congress: Kids and families without enough to eat need help now!
