People should not go hungry - but they do

Today is World Food Day, celebrated each year to create global awareness and action to eliminate hunger.

There is no reason that people anywhere should be hungry – especially not here, in one of the wealthiest countries on the planet. Hunger is a political problem – and solving it is one of my top priorities in Congress.

I'm helping lead the fight against the GOP's attempts to cut more than $23 billion in funding for SNAP and other critical programs as part of the Farm Bill.

Can you chip in to support my campaign and help me continue my work fighting hunger?

Right now, we're facing a massive Republican attack on food assistance that would cause millions of people to go hungry.

Not on our watch. Together, we'll stand up and fight back.
