June 2024 Action Alert

Advocate for hunger-relief policy priorities in the FY25 state budget with your State Senator and State Representative. You can access outreach instructions with a sample phone call script and email template HERE.

Calls To Action

  1. Call your State Representative and State Senator and urge them to support GBFB’s state legislative and budget priorities that address the immediate needs of our neighbors facing food insecurity and root causes to lift families and individuals out of poverty.
  2. Has your State Representative and State Senator co-sponsored “An Act establishing the Massachusetts Hunger-Free Campus Initiative (H.1293/ S.385)?” If they haven’t yet, please consider calling or emailing them to request they co-sponsor the bills. Read our fact sheet to learn more about the bill. The legislation would provide the necessary capacity, technical assistance, and funding that colleges need to tackle food insecurity on their campuses.
