The Farm Bill helps give children access to nutritious food – here at home and around the world
We’re currently facing the worst hunger crisis in a century. Over 9 million kids in the US are facing hunger and nearly 8 million children are at risk of death from severe malnutrition globally.
The Farm Bill, our nation’s largest package of anti-hunger legislation and our greatest defense against hunger crises is expiring this year!
Its programs fund nutrition assistance SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) – support farmers addressing the impacts of climate change and help families in the US and around the world build resilience to chronic challenges and sudden crises.
