ADVOCACY ALERT FROM GREATER BOSTON FOOD BANK

Congress is currently negotiating a third COVID-19 relief package, and we need your help to make sure that they prioritize hunger relief.

Today through Friday, we are joining with our food bank colleagues across the country to urge Congress to include the following anti-hunger provisions:

  1. Continue an increase in SNAP benefits by 15 percent for the duration of the pandemic and economic recovery.
  2. Expand the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit to provide support for families in need and cut child poverty in half.
  3. Provide an additional $900 million for The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) to ensure that food banks can provide increased USDA food relief.
  4. Extend and expand funding and flexibility to ensure that child nutrition programs like Pandemic EBT can continue serving children in need.
  5. Invest $543 million in the infrastructure of our nation’s charitable food system to help address the severe shortage of vehicles, refrigerators, and freezers.

As you know, The Greater Boston Food Bank and our partners continue to respond to historic levels of need, and we need Congress to act so that we can continue to do so.
