Take Action to Change Public Policy

Hunger is injustice. Together we can end it!

Just Harvest staff and members at the April 15, 2015 Fight for $15 rally in PittsburghHunger and poverty are caused by political choices. Ending hunger means changing politics.

Let your representatives in government know how you feel. It is our right – and our responsibility – as constituents to speak our minds and demand action.

The actions on this page explain why (and how) you should call specific elected officials to account. Your calls and emails make a difference!

Want to do more? Come to our Action Against Hunger Council meeting this month to be a key part of these, and other, campaigns.
