Tell Congress to protect programs that fight global hunger


Food prices reached record highs this year – and the number of people going to bed hungry each night is growing. Today, a child will die from hunger-related causes every 9 seconds. 

Right now, Congress is considering cutting funding for programs that combat global hunger – programs that make up less than one-tenth of 1% of the federal budget, but feed millions of people worldwide. If we don’t act now, even more people could go hungry.

Help us send 5,000 messages to Congress – take action today.
