Pass a strong farm bill to help end hunger!

To: Sen. Fetterman, Sen. Casey, Rep. Deluzio

From: A constituent in Imperial, PA

June 4

According to Feeding America's recently released Map the Meal Gap 2024 report, 100% of congressional districts, including yours, are home to people facing hunger. I’m writing to urge you to pass a strong farm bill and strengthen crucial federal nutrition programs like The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to help our neighbors facing hunger! Specifically, Congress should: - Double funding for TEFAP food purchases. This will help ensure food banks can serve everyone who comes through their doors, and it will support the U.S. agricultural economy. - Increase funding for TEFAP storage and distribution to $200 million per year. This will help food banks offset the cost of storing and transporting USDA foods. - Ensure the purchasing power of SNAP benefits aligns with rising grocery prices and provides adequate support during tough economic times. As grocery prices remain high, Congress must come together to support the 44 million people -- including more than 13 million children -- who experience food insecurity in the U.S.
