Tell Your Senators: Expand hunger-fighting programs for kids!
Congress is debating what to include in upcoming budget reconciliation legislation – called the Build Back Better Act – that could expand essential anti-hunger programs. But those programs are on the chopping block right now!
At a time when nearly 1 in 3 children face hunger in New York City, we need your help to tell Congress that budget legislation MUST prioritize our nation’s most important hunger-fighting programs.
Tell your lawmakers: Kids and families are counting on you. Cutting funding to expand programs like the Summer EBT grocery program, the Child Tax Credit, and free school meals for low-income communities is NOT an option!
Join Food Bank For New York City urging your Members of Congress to support anti-poverty priorities in Build Back Better by sending a letter TODAY – thank you!
