Take Action Now!
Below are some of the issues that are critical to the fight against hunger.

The Hunger Action Center is an online community of individuals who are dedicated to making a difference in the fight against hunger in our country.
Together, we advocate on behalf of 35 million hungry Americans by supporting federal, state, and local legislation that addresses the many factors that contribute to food insecurity in our nation.
We're working to educate our elected officials about these issues.

You can help!

One of the most important ways you can get involved in Feeding America is by becoming a hunger advocate.
Advocacy is critical to fighting hunger, and becoming a hunger advocate offers many ways to become active not only in important public policy issues of the day, but also within your community.
Our advocates communicate with their legislators about hunger issues.
They talk to their friends and other social contacts about the need for a solution to hunger.
Many share their personal experiences with hunger with us. They develop their own personal hunger advocacy profiles so that we can work with them on a personal level to achieve the most effective actions and bring about true change.

The Good Samaritan Hunger Relief Tax Incentive Act
Fighting hunger is a team effort. Feeding America’s nationwide network provides food to 25 million people every year, and strong U.S. government programs are also vital to meet the nutritional needs of low-income Americans.
The business sector,including farmers, food manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, and others, also plays an instrumental role in battling hunger.
By donating food and transportation and promoting volunteerism, businesses of all sizes help put food on the tables of families in need. While businesses already make substantial contributions to fight hunger, improved public policies.
Particularly passage of the Good Samaritan Hunger Relief Tax Incentives Act,will promote even greater business participation in this effort.

I got such a great response about my previous two blogs that I was inspired to do some research and find out what can one person do to end hunger. In America and the world. (work still in progress)

Even if a person doesn't have a lot of money, they can still advocate.
Tell a friend with money, and then they can tell a friend, and it works.
Or write to Congress, the President, anyone you think can help.

*Summer Food Service Program (SFSP)*

URGENT NEED
http://www.summerfood.usda.gov/
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) provides low-income children with free, nutritious meals during the summer months when school is not in session and when increased numbers of children are at risk of hunger because they cannot access school meal programs. SFSP is the single-largest federal resource available for local sponsors who want to feed children in the summer months.
