Dear ,

Here is a new Progressive Secretary letter. You will be able to edit your name, address, etc. in the next step.

This is a letter to the President and to Congress, asking them to support legislation funding food programs. It's supported by Bread for the World, a collective Christian voice urging our nation’s decision makers to end hunger at home and abroad.

One billion people are hungry worldwide, and one in six Americans is poor.

Programs for hungry and poor people make up a tiny fraction of the federal budget, but their impact is immense.  These programs save lives, strengthen our national security, and provide a foundation for self-sufficiency.

Cutting international food assistance undermines our ability to respond to emergencies like famine in the Horn of Africa. Responding is not only a matter of compassion but also of national security: humanitarian interventions reduce the likelihood or intensity of civil and international wars.

Here at home, food programs like SNAP are crucial to easing the real pain of economic recession and reducing our own counterproductive civil conflicts.  They should not be misrepresented for cynical political purposes.  

Please protect hungry people from political cynics.  Fund food assistance.
