The Hunger Museum clearly shows that political winds and policy changes have deep and lasting effects on the lives of millions of people facing hunger. That is why we must work together to promote systemic change through advocacy.
Together, we can improve policies at the federal, state, and local level and help the millions of Americans facing hunger. Join MAZON in action today.
Members of Congress must ensure that the people of Puerto Rico can access the same nutrition assistance as their fellow American citizens living stateside. By transitioning them to SNAP, and away from the current block grant program, more people in Puerto Rico will have access to life-saving nutrition assistance.
The Farm Bill is one of the most transformational pieces of legislation that Congress regularly reauthorizes, and it is up for renewal this year. Congress must protect and strengthen SNAP (food stamps) and other essential programs that serve tens of millions of Americans each year.
Members of the U.S. House and Senate must reintroduce and pass the Tribal Nutrition Improvement Act, which would enable Tribes to administer child nutrition programs in Indian Country, fight food insecurity, and allow culturally appropriate food to be available.
