The Farm Bill is moving: Call Congress today!

Every email you send, every letter you write and every call you make to advocate for hunger relief helps us secure more food for our Ozarks neighbors in need.

The Senate passed their version of the Farm Bill, and the House Agriculture Committee approved its Farm Bill draft. The full House still needs to pass the bill, and there is no timetable for when a vote might occur. The House and Senate would need to negotiate the differences between the two versions. Then, it would need to pass both houses once again, and we need all the help we can get to make sure that it protects and strengthens the programs that help those in need put food on the table.

You can help by continuing to call Congress. For families struggling with hunger, a strong Farm Bill could be the difference between a hot plate of food at night or going to bed hungry. Will you help us tell our leaders?

Calling Congress is easy. We’ve put together a simple message that you can deliver. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Call this toll-free hotline: 877-698-8228
  • Listen to the pre-recorded message and enter your zip code when prompted
  • You will then be connected to your first representative. Deliver this message:

    I strongly oppose cuts to SNAP and other hunger-relief programs. Please vote against the proposed cuts to SNAP in the House Farm Bill. Increasing hunger in America is the wrong direction for our country.

You can also find more talking points, instructions, and guidelines for calling your representatives here.

As Hunger Advocates, we need your full support to help us protect the programs that serve our nation's most vulnerable populations. Please call your leaders today and encourage them to protect the vital food and nutrition programs in the Farm Bill.

Stay Tuned!

Together we must continue to send a strong message to our elected officials that balancing the budget shouldn’t be done at the expense of struggling families.

Thank you for all your dedication and support.
Together, we can end hunger in Missouri and America.
