结束美国的饥饿感继续得到两党的支持,这对于我们对联邦营养计划的长期支持策略至关重要。自50多年前成立以来,FRAC一直在国会的过道上工作,以通过立法,以改善低收入个人和家庭获得营养计划的机会。从1970年开始,与参议员乔治·麦戈文(D-SD)和鲍勃·多尔(R-KS)合作,到2021年,与参议员黛比·斯塔诺(Debbie Stabenow)(D-MI)和约翰·布兹曼(John Boozman)(R-AR)合作,Frac量身定制它以两党方式进行游说的努力。

2月,FRAC得出了一个新的战略规划过程,该过程在五个领域提供了更大的重点:加强联邦营养计划,以确保它们为美国的低收入个人提供足够和有尊严的营养机会;确保在联邦,州和地方层面实施计划的计划最大化可用的福利;支持减少贫困和其他根源原因的政策和计划;通过将权益嵌入联邦营养计划中来减少种族饥饿差距;并建立国家承诺,以支持公正有效的反狩猎政策。倡导目标,董事会,工作人员和国家倡导者,合作伙伴和捐助者网络的投入来告知该计划。

今年从联邦政府shutdow开始n, which threatened millions of Americans’ access to the federal nutrition programs, so FRAC took numerous steps, such as releasing official statements and creating a toolkit, to advocate for ending the shutdown so that struggling households could access the federal nutrition programs. Alarmed by the proposed public charge rule, FRAC coordinated with its national network of partners, including Protecting Immigrant Families (PIF), to reject the proposed rule by providing a platform for partners and other advocates to submit comments. During this time, FRAC began serving as the nutrition lead on the steering committee for the PIF Campaign, which leads efforts against attacks on the nation’s health and well-being. All year long SNAP was constantly being challenged, so FRAC held firm on protecting SNAP from, for example, two proposed rule changes: Categorical Eligibility and the Standard Utility Allowance. FRAC again created comment platforms, replete with templates and other resources, for each. Child nutrition was also in the spotlight with the Child Nutrition Reauthorization due.
