The United States' current food aid system is inefficient and outdated. It undermines local farmers, racks up exorbitant shipping fees, and keeps people dependent on aid. Worse, it can delay food shipments for months, so that it arrives too late for those who really need it.
After grassroots activists sent in thousands of letters, the Senate passed an amendment strengthening reform. Now it's time for the House to start fixing the system by increasing flexibility and ending inefficient practices.
But with special interests committed to keeping the status quo, we need to let the House know that we support reform! Just fill out the form below to send a message to your Representative. Your letter could make all the difference for families living in hunger hotspots around the world.
