Congress Must Make Funding Decisions That End Hunger by 2030

In 2017, we are raising our collective voice to ask Congress to make funding decisions that put our country and the world on track to end hunger by 2030. Your messages to Congress will push legislators to make funding decisions that will support vital anti-hunger and anti-poverty programs and policies.

The Trump administration’s newest proposed budget for fiscal year 2018 includes deep cuts to domestic and international programs that serve poor and hungry people. The White House has sent Congress a list of programs to cut. The budget proposes:

  • More than $1.7 trillion in cuts to safety-net programs including SNAP (formerly known as food stamps), Medicaid, and refundable tax credits for low-income working families.
  • More than $190 billion in cuts to SNAP, impacting millions of senior citizens, working families, and unemployed Americans.
  • Eliminating funding for Food for Peace, which funds emergency food aid and development programs.

These budget cuts would make it nearly impossible to end hunger and extreme poverty. You can make an impact. Tell Congress to reject these cuts.
