Dear Congressman/Senator _______________,

Hunger affects the lives of 795 million people worldwide and one in eight Americans. As a concerned student participant in Farm Journal Foundation’s HungerU program, I am reaching out to you to ask for your continued support of legislation which promotes agricultural development and improves global food security.

With a world population expected to reach more than 10 billion people by 2050, food security will continue to be a prominent issue in global affairs, trade and national security efforts. It is important that farmers have access to the tools and skills they need to sustainably produce enough food to feed themselves and their families. The passage of the Global Food Security Act in 2016 is was an important step by the U.S. to strengthen agricultural sectors in developing countries to accelerate sustainable growth that reduces poverty, hunger and malnutrition.

That legislation is up for reauthorization in 2018. I encourage you to consider the statistics mentioned above and more importantly, the reality that when a person is hungry for an extended period, it affects every second of their life. Children suffer, families suffer and society suffers. Hunger is a solvable problem, and as your constituent, I urge your continued support and leadership of development efforts that strengthen agriculture in U.S. foreign policy.

Sincerely,

FOLLOW US ON TOUR!
