With the 2012 election now in the books, the winners will need to hear from Just Harvest and our supporters about hunger and poverty issues affecting our neighbors. Sign up today for our Advocacy Alerts HERE to stay informed about upcoming critical issues facing poor people in our community.
Here's some of our advocacy agenda for the near future:
- Farm Bill - Protect funding for Food Stamps (SNAP)
- The Fiscal Cliff - Don't balance the budget on the backs of poor people - protect Safety Net Programs and preserve fairness in tax policy
- State Budget - No more cuts to Human Services
- City of Pittsburgh Hunger Fund - Tell Mayor Ravenstahl and City County to fully fund anti-hunger requests in the 2013 City Budget
- Summer Food Expansion - Help us plan for stronger local Summer Food Programs in 2013
