The holiday season is traditionally a time when our nation pays special attention to alleviating hunger. Yet hunger is a year-round phenomenon. Shortly after the holiday season ends, the new Congress and President-elect Trump will be sworn in and begin making key decisions on programs that affect the lives of so many who are food-insecure. We call on them to recommit America to one of its most important and widely agreed-upon beliefs with deep and long-standing bipartisan support – that nobody in our nation should go hungry. Nearly 3 million people struggle with hunger in New York State alone. More than 900,000 of them are children.
