These lifesaving programs have historically received bipartisan support, and as Mark noted in his testimony, "[t]he Subcommittee’s past support for critical food aid programs confirms that you, too, are moved by present injustices and motivated to mobilize American commodities and investment to address them. Your continued partnership in aiding and empowering the most vulnerable members of our global community is indispensable to the work of Food for the Hungry." The programs Mark mentioned provide the relief urgently needed to save lives now, while building long-term resilience to prevent future crises.
We need your help to support Mark's message! Members of Congress are currently debating next year's funding levels for critical relief and development programs. Please contact your Member of Congress and Senators today to ask them to protect strong funding for international development and food security programs in both the Agriculture and State & Foreign Operations appropriations bills in Fiscal Year 2024.
