Questions to ask your representative
Actions to take on the issue

If your member of Congress voted the right way, send them a message of thanks.

  • Hungry kids in the U.S. can’t concentrate enough to do well in school, and it is no different in other countries. Why did you vote to end the McGovern-Dole grants to feed school children abroad? (H. Amdt. 444 to H.R. 2112)
  • International food aid for severe hunger helps stabilize volatile countries. Why did you vote to cut Food for Peace grants for severe hunger? (H. Amdt. 443 to H.R. 2112)

If your member of Congress voted the right way, send them a message of thanks or stand up at a town hall meeting and let them know how much you appreciated their vote(s).
