Let's fight hunger globally, not just locally

This petition had 437 supporters

Almost one billion people around the world suffer from hunger, while nearly two billion are undernourished. 

Recently, Senator Blanche Lincoln introduced the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, a bipartisan bill that aims to end childhood hunger and tackle the epidemic of childhood obesity in the U.S. Still, the Global Food Security Act has been on the floor for almost a year, and has not yet been passed.

Now is the time to tell Congress that a global hunger bill should be debated side-by-side with this important domestic bill. Let's help ensure that all children, not just American children, are able to access a healthy meal each day.
