Take Action California! Urge Congress to End Summer Hunger!   
Summer EBT works, but it's not at work in California. Representative Susan Davis (CA-53) and Senator Patty Murray (WA) have introduced the Stop Child Summer Hunger Act of 2014 to ensure low-income children across the country have access to Summer EBT.

 

Join us in encouraging our California Representatives and Senators to become co-sponsors of this important legislation. Their support will ease the bills' re-introduction next year, setting the stage for Congressional action on this issue that is critical to the health and success of kids in our state.

 

If you would like to add your organization to the coalition letter, please send an email to Elyse Homel Vitale at elyse@cfpa.net by Wednesday, November 26th.
