Support Maternal and Child Health through the Global Food Security Act. Now is an important time to support this act because it was recently passed through the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and may soon be voted on in the Senate or House. Click the button below to urge your members of Congress to support child nutrition and maternal health.
The Global Food Security Act will continue to help hungry and malnourished nations around the world develop smart, long-term, country-specific agriculture policies and will help to ensure that these nations independently meet their nutrition needs. The act will also benefit women and children during the critical 1,000 days from the beginning of a woman’s pregnancy through her child’s second birthday. Proper nutrition during this period has deep impacts on a child’s brain development, the ability to grow and learn, and corresponding long-term effects on the country’s development and prosperity. Write to your members of Congress TODAY and urge them to support the Global Food Security Act.
