Ask Congress to Keep WIC and Meals-On-Wheels Off the Chopping Block!

Unless Congress acts within the next week, vulnerable children, families and seniors will face deep cuts in the services they depend on to put food on the table.

Across the nation, hundreds of thousands of pregnant women and children will lose nutrition assistance provided by the WIC program. Seniors will receive 4 million fewer meals through Meals on Wheels. And nearly a quarter of a million people will lose the housing assistance that helps them afford a safe place to live. 

Join advocates around the country and ask Congress to not harm our community and struggling families.
