Message to President Biden and Members of Congress:
Hunger is a fundamental violation of human dignity, and it is a challenge that transcends borders and ideologies. Living in a world of plenty, it is unacceptable to idly stand by while one in every 10 people go to bed on an empty stomach. Oxfam, and a global community of supporters, are calling upon you to invest in a more sustainable and secure food system for everyone.
The U.S. must increase its support for sustainable and long-term solutions to food insecurity. This includes:
- expanding funding for life-saving food aid
- investing in agriculture and rural development
- improving access to education and health services
- and addressing the impacts of climate change on food systems.
Investing in a food-secure future would save lives by ensuring that everyone has access to adequate food. In a world without hunger, everyone can thrive, not just survive. We urge you to invest in food security so no one has to experience hunger.
