Please take action, call your Senator today and/or tomorrow to ask that s/he

rural citizens in ways that promote security at the community level.to

COMMUNITY FOOD PROJECTS ACTION ALERT
Senate Action needed Tuesday Oct. 30 on Community Food Projects

Current Status:
The Senate is moving very quickly on the Farm Bill and Senator Harkin
(D-IA), Chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee Chair is expected to
have a Farm Bill ready to mark up in committee by Thursday. Harkin staff has
been under pressure to cut nutrition programs, including the Community Food
Projects, to a minimum-most likely $2.5 million. This $5 million less than
appropriated for the Community Food Projects in the Farm Bill passed by the
House. 

Action needed:
Many of you have already contacted your Senators, many of whom are on the
Agriculture Committee. We are asking that you do this again by phone ON
TUESDAY  IF AT ALL POSSIBLE OR WEDNESDAY. Please call your Washington DC
Senate offices, especially if your Senator is on the Agriculture Committee.
Call the Capitol Switchboard (202) 224-3121 and ask for the number of your
Senator's office.  Ask to speak to staff working on the nutrition title of
the Farm Bill. (The Senate phones have not been working completely reliable,
so if  you can not reach the Capitol Office, call the Senator's District
office instead.)

The message:
Ask that your Senator support reauthorization and expansion of Community
Food Projects mandatory funding in the Harkin Farm Bill at least at the
level of the House Farm Bill ($7.5 million per year) or higher. This is a
small but very important program, especially at this time of our nation's
history, as these projects address the nutrition and economic needs of the
most vulnerable urban and rural citizens in ways that promote security at
the community level.

DO NOT WAIT. CALL ON TUESDAY AND WEDNESDAY. YOUR VOICES COUNT.
