Advocating For Change

Your voice makes a difference

Help us advocate for programs and policies that bring relief to individuals and families struggling to get by.

Contact your Senator to let them know you support full funding for SNAP (food stamps) and other federal nutrition programs.

Contact your Representative and tell them that Maine needs strong SNAP, General Assistance, school nutrition, and summer meals programs.

Help eliminate hunger in our state

Call or email your local representative and senator to let them know where you stand.
