Join the fight against extreme poverty

Right now, our chances of passing legislation dedicated to ending global hunger, malnutrition, and extreme poverty have never been better. But passing the Global Food Security Act cannot be done without your immediate help.

As you read this, the House of Representatives is finalizing the text of H.R. 1567, the Global Food Security Act and readying it for consideration on the House Floor. The bill’s sponsors, Representatives Chris Smith (R-NJ) and Betty McCollum (D-MN), have asked ONE’s membership to engage their Members of Congress over the spring recess to urge them to cosponsor the bill. Although the bill already has a bipartisan list of 123 cosponsors, adding to that list will demonstrate to House Leadership the importance of this legislation and prompt them to include it for consideration when they return from the recess.

795 million people around the world suffer from hunger today—down 167 million over the last decade and 216 million lower than in 1990.

The Global Food Security Act ensures that the U.S. builds upon the successes of existing efforts to improve global food and nutrition security, particularly through the whole-of-government and comprehensive Feed the Future Initiative, which makes smart investments across the whole agricultural value chain so that people in developing countries can lift themselves out of poverty and raise healthier and stronger children. This legislation strengthens our collective commitment to helping developing countries grow their way out of poverty and overcome hunger and malnutrition.

In an effort to reduce the number of people suffering from hunger around the world, ONE strongly supports passage of the Global Food Security Act and urges our members to ensure their Representatives in Congress do as well. While we are continuing to work with Congress and the Administration to pass the Global Food Security Act, we’re asking you, our members, to help ensure U.S. leadership continues to sustainably tackle global hunger, malnutrition, and extreme poverty in the most effective ways possible.

Please call your Representative in Congress today and urge them to cosponsor HR 1567, the Global Food Security Act!
