We have the tools to move toward our goal of ending hunger. Good nutrition during the 1,000-day period from the beginning of a woman’s pregnancy to her child’s second birthday is critical to a child’s health and future well-being. To accelerate progress on nutrition, we must scale up what we know works: improved access to nutritious foods, vitamins and minerals, clean water and sanitation, promotion of breastfeeding, and treatment for severe malnutrition.
On March 8, Representatives Roger Marshall (R-KS) and Jim McGovern (D-MA) introduced H.Res.189 recognizing the importance of continued United States leadership to accelerate global progress against maternal and child malnutrition. Your letter urging your representative to co-sponsor the resolution will help build support for accelerating progress toward ending hunger.
Tip: Personalized emails have the most impact. Add a note explaining why hunger is important to you.
