Last week the White House released the President’s budget, which provides a vision of administration priorities as Congress develops the actual budget that will fund our government. The budget proposed eliminating AmeriCorps, the national service program that fuels FoodCorps’ ability to improve children’s health in eighteen states around the country. This recommendation disregards overwhelming public support and eight decades of strong bipartisan legislative support for national service.
Congress ultimately makes the decision about what is funded and what is not. Will you help us make sure Congress protects AmeriCorps? Use this form to contact your members of Congress today and urge them to protect funding for national service. Let them know how important these programs are to your community.
