There are several ways that we can end hunger, but we have to think big and focus on bold policies. Please join us in action.
Urge Congress to protect SNAP and lift up other MAZON priorities in the 2023 Farm Bill!
The Farm Bill is one of the most transformational pieces of legislation that Congress regularly reauthorizes, and it is up for renewal this year. In addition to authorizing SNAP (food stamps) and other federal nutrition programs that serve tens of millions of Americans each year, the Farm Bill presents a unique opportunity to advance long-overdue policy solutions to the food security challenges of many special populations that MAZON prioritizes. Take action now.
Take Action to Support Military Families
Please join us in urging all members of Congress to address the long-overdue issue of military hunger. Take action now.
Tell Congress: Pass the Puerto Rico Nutrition Assistance Fairness Act!
Though a huge portion of Puerto Rico’s population lives in poverty, a federal block grant prevents these U.S. citizens from receiving the same nutrition benefits as those living in states on the mainland. It is well past time to fix this egregious problem — residents of Puerto Rico are entitled to access the same nutrition assistance as all other Americans. Take action now.
Urge Congress to Reintroduce the Tribal Nutrition Improvement Act
Join us in urging Congress to reintroduce the Tribal Nutrition Improvement Act, which would enable Tribes to administer child nutrition programs in Indian Country and ensure culturally appropriate food. Take action now.
Urge Congress to Advance Solutions for Single Mothers Facing Hunger
Congress must improve access to vital nutrition benefits for single mothers and address the many circumstances and systemic challenges that contribute to hunger. Take action now.
Tell Congress: Extend the Child Tax Credit
The Child Tax Credit’s benefits are already clear to millions of families, but Congress only authorized the credit through December 2021. As Congress continues to advance the Build Back Better plan, it is critical that they prioritize federal nutrition assistance and extend the Child Tax Credit — ideally making it permanent. Take action now.
