Call Congress

Dial (202)-224-3121 to be connected to your member of Congress' office. Here's what to say:

1. "I urge you to protect critical federal anti-hunger programs like SNAP, WIC, and school meals programs."

2. "These programs serves as the nation’s first line of defense against hunger.  If they are weakened, many millions of older Americans, people with disabilities, children, struggling parents – working and unemployed – and others will be harmed, and the nation will see more hunger and food insecurity, worse health and educational outcomes, and higher health costs."

3. "As a constituent and a voter, I plan to stay informed about how you and your colleagues address hunger in the United States"
