Hunger-Free Summer for Kids Act of 2019

In June, a bipartisan group of senators introduced legislation to make federal child nutrition programs more efficient, flexible, and better equipped to reach children in need during the summer.

For some children, the summer months can lead to food insecurity as they are absent from school and meals aren’t readily accessible. The Hunger-Free Summer for Kids Act of 2019 will add flexibility to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), which offers children from low-income families free lunch and snacks in the summer.

We believe that the people of God should be the first to respond to the plight of the world's hungry with a compassion that breaks all barriers.

Ask your Members of Congress to support legislation that removes barriers to healthy, accessible meals for children during the summer.

My name is {YOUR NAME}. I am your constituent from {CITY, STATE} and ask that you address the highly concerning issue of the treatment of vulnerable families and children at the U.S.-Mexico border.

The reports of children in detention facilities — and the conditions they are being held in — are devastating. There are constant reports of mistreatment and neglect at the hands of small children, and we cannot allow vulnerable migrants to suffer or die in these facilities.

I believe that, except in cases where there is a threat to public safety, families should remain together as they wait for their asylum hearings. 

Thank you for your work and I look forward to your timely action regarding this crisis.
