God has called me to journey with people through life’s challenges—a journey that has brought me to Washington, D.C., today, along with over 300 people to talk to my members of Congress about the farm bill.
We need your voice too! Call (800-826-3688) or email your members of Congress and urge them to pass a bipartisan farm bill that protects and strengthens domestic and international nutrition programs.
As a Peruvian immigrant pastor, I never imagined that my ministry would take me to the halls of such power. But I have learned that advocacy is necessary in our world. When the most vulnerable are being pushed further into the margins, we must speak up.
Having grown up in one of the poorest villages on the outskirts of Lima, Peru, I understand how economic disparity can increase hunger and limit opportunity. The House version of the farm bill would increase hunger and hardship by cutting access to vital nutrition programs for millions of Americans. Over 200,000 children would be at risk of losing access to school lunches. African Americans, Latinos, and Native Americans would be disproportionately affected by the legislation. The Senate’s version of the farm bill protects SNAP from these harmful policy changes.
Today, I’m asking my members to make the better choice. I hope you will join me.

Indigenous communities have some of the highest hunger rates in the United States. As a group, one in four Native Americans and Alaskan Natives are food insecure, defined as not having regular, reliable access to the foods needed for good health.
While hunger declined from 2017 for the general U.S. population, African Americans experienced a one percent increase, an increase of 153,000 African American households. This fact sheet explores the issue in depth.
Better nutrition is a necessary component of a country’s capacity to achieve development goals such as economic growth and improved public health.

In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
