No Kid Hungry: take a minute, help save a child

Pin It

join No Kid Hungry and myself in

taking action to help the children of our nation took me less than a minute.  all you have to do is enter your voter info (name, address) and the form is automatically filled out with a message to your congressman

you can write your own message or add to the default one they provide that says:

As a constituent and a supporter of Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign to end childhood hunger in America, I am writing to implore you to protect funding for critical federal nutrition programs, including the Supplemental Nutrition and Assistance Program (SNAP) as you work to authorize the Farm Bill.

I understand that Congress has tough decisions to make about federal spending. SNAP, however, is critical in protecting kids from the impacts of poverty. Nearly half of all SNAP participants are children and cuts to SNAP will burden those kids with long-term consequences to their health, education and economic futures.

With high unemployment, record numbers of families are depending on federal nutrition programs to provide food for their children. These programs are critical in making sure all American children get the food they need to reach their full potential.

Let's not balance the budget on the backs of children who need us.

will you take a stand with me?  it will only take a minute.
