For more than 60 years, the Food for Peace program, which is funded by the United States, has been a world leader in fighting global hunger. Unfortunately, President Trump’s budget eliminates the key account that funds Food for Peace. This is despite the fact that more than 795 million people in the world don't have enough food, including more than 20 million in the four countries threatened by famine: Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen.
If Food For Peace funding is cut, 22.6 million people in crises could lose access to lifesaving food assistance. It also would end a critical development program that each year helps nearly 8 million people grow or produce food better so they are better able to feed their families.
We need your help to stop these drastic proposed cuts. Please sign the attached petition to your Member of Congress telling them that you want them to protect Food for Peace, and the tens of millions of people who need lifesaving assistance, and maintain US leadership in the fight against global hunger.
