Advocating for a hunger-free America
Federal nutrition programs matter. A child who cannot rely on dinner at home is assured breakfast at school because of the School Breakfast Program. A working mother who is struggling to make ends meet knows she can get help to feed her family through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
But our federal programs are only as strong as the support they receive on Capitol Hill. Feeding America works daily to protect and expand these vital programs to ensure that no one in America goes hungry.
Feeding America advocates for funding in programs that help people facing hunger and federal tax policies that enhance nonprofit giving tax incentives.
Feeding America works to ensure the Farm Bill - the largest piece of legislation impacting the nation's agriculture policy and nutrition program - protects funding to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), strengthens The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP), and the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP), and enables vital food donations.
Feeding America advocates for the Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act - a bill that provides federal funding for programs that help children most in need and ensures they get the nutrition to grow and learn.
