1 in 6 people in America may not know where their next meal will come from. That number includes children, who risk falling behind in school if they can't concentrate because of hunger. It includes parents struggling to keep food on the table after losing a job. People just like you are struggling with hunger in communities just like yours, and they need help.
But Congress doesn’t get it. And they aren’t taking the action needed to find a solution. The best way to help legislators understand the scope of hunger in America is to see it for themselves.
Our goal is to have every member of Congress visit a food bank in 2013, and we need your help to make that happen.
Please act today to send a message to your members of Congress to ask them to schedule a visit to a food bank in 2013.
