Help end Hunger! Support a strong Farm Bill in 2018!
On Tuesday, January
23, Lutheran leaders from across the country will meet with members of Congress
and their staff in Washington, D.C. to urge Congress to support a strong 2018
We will raise our voices together and call on Congress to
protect the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), support
international food assistance, promote the
appropriate mix of conservation measures, strengthen
safety nets for farmers and funding for research, and honor
treaties and land claims by Indigenous Peoples.
Christ taught us in the Lord’s Prayer to pray for our daily bread.
Martin Luther’s expansive understanding of daily bread includes not only what
nourishes our bodies, but also the natural resources, labor and the economy,
including the food supply chain.
Advocacy for good policies in the Farm Bill
provides a means to express that love in a way that will contribute to the
well-being of God’s people and creation and contribute to a just world where
all are fed.
Your actions have and will continue to make a difference. We
will raise our voices together to call on Congress to support a strong 2018
Dear [Decision Maker],
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP]
