Act Now
For the first time since the start of the Great Recession, the total number of people living at risk of hunger and in poverty in the U.S. has gone down. In fact, the number of Americans living at risk of hunger and in poverty has decreased by 12 percent and 8 percent, to 42 million and 43 million respectively. While these numbers are still too high, this is a positive step and proof that the right policies can help lead us to zero hunger and poverty by 2030. But we won't get there if Congress doesn't do its job and make ending hunger both here in the U.S. and abroad a priority. 

Call (800-826-3688) or email Rep. Diana DeGette and Sen. Michael Bennet and Sen. Cory Gardner today! 

Tell Congress that 42 million Americans, including 13 million children, are at risk of hunger. Urge them to pass a fiscal year 2017 budget that adequately funds critical anti-hunger and anti-poverty programs like WIC, Summer EBT, and international development assistance focused on poverty. 

Time is running out. If Congress doesn’t pass spending bills by September 30, the end of its fiscal year, they risk a government shutdown. Families counting on nutrition assistance here in the U.S. and around the world could be impacted. Call (800-826-3688) or email today. 

Thank you,
