APA Continues Advocacy Around Hunger and Food Assistance
Collaborations with partner organizations amplify message
APA joined 56 national organizations in a letter urging Congress (PDF, 534KB) to support funding for key low-income nutrition programs. The letter asks Congress to provide sufficient funding for programs like the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), the Emergency Food Assistance Program (food banks) and the Commodity Supplemental Food Program, which provides food packages primarily to low-income, food-insecure seniors. APA continues to advocate on these and other poverty issues, as work gets underway around 2015 federal fiscal year spending.
Helping Americans achieve proper nutrition represents a longstanding priority for APA. To participate in these and other advocacy efforts, please sign up for APA’s Federal Action Network.
