Advocating for more support and services for our neighbors in need is a powerful way to make a difference.  While advocacy can take a variety of paths, it always begins with taking the time to become well-versed, fluent, and passionate about the complex issues of hunger and poverty.

A simple and important way to advocate is to talk to the people you come into contact every day.  Friends, colleagues, family members, and others may not be aware of size and scope of the hunger problem, or about the effect it has on our entire community.  Your passion will inform and inspire them to want to take action to help, just as you do! Your voice can make that difference.

Take Action: Major Federal Nutrition Programs at Risk

Major federal nutrition programs at riskThe current proposed budget puts 42 million Americans at risk by stripping their access to food. The budget calls for gutting the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, also known as the food stamp program) with one of the largest proposed cuts to the program ever.

The SNAP program puts food into the hands of more than 42 million Americans; about 40% of people on SNAP are children, 25% are elderly, and the rest are largely made up of the working poor, veterans and a small portion of the unemployed.

Families, seniors and veterans need your voice – send a message to your lawmakers right now to tell them to put a stop to the proposed budget.
