Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another action alert from Progressive Secretary.

Our letter supports a campaign by Feeding America. It asks Congress and the United States Department of Agriculture to increase funding for The Emergency Food Assistance Program.

We will send your email message to your senators, House member, and Ms. Cindy Long, Administrator, USDA Food and Nutrition Service
.

Please help prevent hunger in America.

Particularly in times of crisis, America’s families depend on food banks for fresh vegetables, milk, meat, and other staples. The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) makes it possible to meet that demand.

TEFAP helps U.S. farmers and other producers sell their products. And it helps our neighbors throughout the country who need food.

Congress and the USDA can help. Please increase funding for USDA food purchases. Additional funds will support food banks’ capacity to feed those in need.

Address America’s hunger crisis. Increase funding by $900 million for food purchases through TEFAP.

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
