Help fight world hunger
Dear [Decision Maker],
I am a constituent and member of CARE and I am writing to urge you to make the the Global Food Security Act the law of the land by passing S.1252, the Global Food Security Act. A very similar version of this bill (H.R. 1567) passed the House on April 12 by a vote of 370-33.
This bill brings important oversight to existing spending! It is time to send this to the President's desk. Nearly 800 million people -- including tens of millions of children -- suffer from chronic hunger. In fact, hunger and malnutrition kill more people than HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. The Global Food Security Act is a budget neutral bill that will produce a comprehensive strategy that demands effective and sustainable programs to tackle hunger and build on what we know works including investments in women and smallholder farmers. Please take a stand against world hunger and pass S.1252, the Global Food Security Act.
