Tell Congress to combat world hunger

Recently, worldwide increases in food prices have triggered a global surge in hunger. But even before the current crisis, hunger had been on the rise. The truth is that long-standing U.S. food aid programs haven't proven effective in reducing chronic hunger. The U.S. needs to respond to the crisis and begin to change the U.S. approach to hunger by addressing its underlying causes.

Congress is currently debating the FY08-09 Emergency Supplemental Appropriations bill which includes two important provisions that can make inroads in the global hunger crisis. Take a moment to contact your representative and encourage them to take a stand on this important issue.
