Oregon Foodbank action alert

Please send a message to Sen. Ron Wyden, Sen. Jeff Merkley and Rep. David Wu now to support child nutrition programs.
 
Each day in Oregon, hundreds of thousands of children live in poverty and face hunger.  Hunger stifles their health, intellect, creativity, and capacity to learn. Federal child nutrition programs, like the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), school lunch and breakfast, and summer food, provide millions of children with the only meals they can count on.
Ask Congress to strengthen these nutrition programs and commit to our goal of ending childhood hunger by 2015. These programs are only reauthorized every five years, making this an urgent time to act on behalf of hungry children. We can and must achieve this objective. All children deserve an equal opportunity to succeed in school and life.
