For our 2020 campaign we’d like to concentrate on asking our representatives to support the following:

  1. Boosting SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) maximum benefits by 15% to ensure that the most vulnerable people will have the resources they need during the COVID-19 outbreak.
  1. Support efforts to end summer hunger for children by supporting the Hunger-Free Summer for Kids Act (S.1918) and the Summer Electronic Benefit (EBT) pilot program which both can provide more children access to nutritious food during summer months.

Thank you for taking time to advocate for people experiencing hunger!

Bread for the World Offering of Letters is an annual campaign that engages churches, campuses and other faith communities throughout the United States in writing letters to Congress advocating to decrease hunger. At FUMC – Offering of Letters is sponsored by FUMC’s Mind the Gap group which is a study and advocacy group focused on the core causes and solutions to food insecurity in our community.
