Call to Action:

On December 9, the House of Representatives unanimously passed the Weekends Without Hunger Act (H.R. 5012), which Feeding America has been working to pass. This bill would support community efforts to feed low-income children during weekends and long school holidays. If the bill passes the Senate before Congress adjourns for the year, it would result in new opportunities for food banks to feed children on the weekends when they don’t have access to child nutrition programs. Help us urge the Senate to pass this important legislation.

Here’s how you can call your Senator:

Dial 877-698-8228 and enter your zip code to connect directly to your Senator’s office.
Deliver this simple message: Please bring the Weekends Without Hunger Act (HR 5012) to the floor and pass it this year!

Please take a moment to call your Senator today!
