Say ‘no’ to federal budget cuts that would put families at risk of hunger

Feeding America has a simple vision: a hunger-free America. Yet in 2016, 1 in 5 children in the United States faces hunger, which impacts their ability to not only learn in school but to grow and reach their full potential.  Last month, the House Budget Committee proposed a federal budget that would drastically cut needed funding to programs that help ensure our nation’s children have access to nutritious meals over the next ten years. These cuts would mean that millions of children and their families across the country may lose essential meals that give their families the opportunity to thrive. We must stand with every family at risk for hunger and fight against this proposed budget. We are on a quest to get Congress to oppose this budget and cutting funding from programs that ensure every child in America has access to a healthy and hungry free life. Join Feeding America and thousands of anti-hunger advocates and help us spur Congress into action and protect our children’s future. Together, we can solve child hunger.  Will you join us?

Tell Congress to get back to work on Child Hunger!

Feeding America has a simple vision: a hunger-free America. Yet the reality is 1 in 5 kids in the United States faces hunger, which impacts their ability to focus and learn in school. Thankfully, today you can do something about it. Congress must act now to strengthen child nutrition programs, especially programs that target children during school breaks, weekends and summer months when they are harder to reach or don’t have access to meal sites. But time is running out—the current child nutrition bill expires September 30, 2015. Tell Congress that our children can’t wait any longer! It’s time for Congress to stop kicking the can down the road and act decisively to help us end child hunger in our nation. Please raise your voice—right now—and urge Congress move forward on child nutrition without any more delays. Hunger doesn’t take a break. And neither should Congress. Tell them to pass a strong nutrition bill by September 30, 2015. Join Feeding America and thousands of anti-hunger advocates to keep the pressure on Congress to strengthen the Child Nutrition Reauthorization. Together, we can solve child hunger.
