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 put us on track to end hunger by 2030 and will support vital anti-hunger and anti-poverty programs and policies.

The Trump administration’s initial proposed budget for fiscal year 2018 includes deep cuts to international and domestic programs that serve poor and hungry people. The White House has sent Congress a list of programs to cut or eliminate. Among the cuts are proposals to:

  • Eliminate funding for the McGovern-Dole food program, which feeds children in some of the world’s poorest countries
  • Cut millions from the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), which provides energy assistance to millions of America’s poorest families

In late May, the Trump administration is expected to introduce a more detailed budget proposal, including deep cuts to foreign assistance and safety-net programs like SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) and Medicaid.

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.
