Local Organizations Call on Floridians to Join the Anti-Hunger “Rolling Rally” on July 20th

17 Jul 2020 2:09 PM | Administrator (Administrator)


On Monday, July 20th, organizations across the nation and in Florida will be participating in a day of action to tell the Senate it must act quickly to pass a COVID-19 relief package that boosts SNAP benefits for struggling households.

Nationwide, the Food Research and Action Center, Children’s Defense Fund, Coalition on Human Needs, First Focus and many others are supporting this effort and have put out a call to action.

In Florida, organizations such as United Way, University of Florida, Florida Impact and Bread for the World, are asking Floridians to join with anti-hunger advocates around the country by emailing or calling local Senators Rick Scott and Marco Rubio between 9am and Noon (EST) on Monday, July 20th.

If you or your organization would like to send a letter, Bread for the World has put together a template which can be downloaded here.

To contact your senator, below is a list of names, emails and offices around the state.
