Hunger Advocate Newsletter – Issue 1

Welcome to the first issue of the Hunger Advocate, the newsletter for hunger issue and advocacy updates. We invite you to read more about the issues that are impacting hunger in America and what’s being done to help.

Read more about the Hunger Action Center and hunger advocacy.

Your voice in the debate can make a difference.

Advocacy plays an important role in the policy decisions that are made every day. Through the Hunger Action Center, you’re able to fight hunger by communicating with policymakers who can help us reach real solutions.

83 percent of food banks say they are having trouble meeting new demands for support.

America’s Second Harvest is actively supporting legislation and policies that can help fight hunger in our communities. We are encouraged by the recent victory we experienced on the Farm Bill when Congress overrode the President’s veto, and we continue to push for legislative action that would:

Secure adequate funding for the Emergency Food Assistance Program and the Commodity Supplemental Food Program.

Improve the Food Stamp program.
