Earlier this month, Arizona Fair Share Organizer Kim Pope went to St. Mary's Food Bank to award one of their dedicated volunteers with our Community Hero Award. St. Mary's Kid's Cafe provides thousands of meals to kids daily.
America is the wealthiest and most powerful nation on earth. Yet, over 15.8 million children are at risk for hunger in the United States every day.
Fair Share is asking Congress to protect food programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), that kids depend on for nutrition.
Just last year, this and other hunger assistance programs were cut, and some in Congress are pushing to slash them even further. We're asking leaders in Congress to restore funding to these crucial programs and protect them from further cuts.
