Too often the the nearly 49 million people in America who struggle with hunger often do so in silence. We can't ignore our friends, neighbors and relatives who face hunger every day -- and we can't let Congress ignore their struggle either.
We need policies that ensure children have the nutrition they need at school and during the summer, improved access for food and nutrition assistance programs like SNAP, and increased tax deductions for charitable food donations.
September is Hunger Action Month, when the Feeding America network of more than 200 food banks unite to urge individuals to take action in their communities.
Take action today by lending your voice to mobilizing the public in the fight to end hunger!
Sign the petition urging Congress to Speak Out Against Hunger and protect the millions of Americans starving in silence.
