Urge your members of Congress to cosponsor the Global Food Security Reauthorization Act!
bipartisan group of U.S. Senators and Representatives has introduced
legislation to reauthorize the Global Food Security Act of 2016. Introduced by
Senators Bob Casey (D-PA) and Johnny Isakson (R-GA), and Representatives Betty
McCollum (D-MN) and Chris Smith (R-NJ), the legislation calls on Congress to
extend the authority of the Global Food Security Act of 2016 for two-to-five
In 2016, Congress passed the Global
Food Security Act with enormous bipartisan support. The legislation has enabled
the U.S. government to improve the way food and nutrition programs are
implemented and accounted for, enabling significant progress against hunger,
malnutrition and poverty. The 2018 reauthorization would build upon these
successes and continue U.S. commitment to fight against global hunger.
Christ calls us to feed the hungry
and partner with our neighbors to find solutions to hunger (Matt. 14:13-21). As
a person of faith, please take a moment to urge your members of Congress to
support the Global Food Security Reauthorization Act.
