Ask the Expert!

2/18/14

We’re pleased to introduce you to our second expert, CARE Senior Policy Advocate Tonya Rawe, in our Ask the Expert series. Leave your questions for Tonya about food aid reform in the comments below and she’ll answer in a video post next month.


Critical reforms to U.S. food aid would allow food to reach 4 million more hungry people without costing taxpayers an extra dollar. How is this possible? And why did CARE give up $45 million a year to take a stand against monetizing food aid? Learn more on our website then leave your questions for Tonya in the comments below by Friday, Feb. 21. She’ll select a few and address you personally when she answers in a special video next month.

 

Earlier this month, the Senate passed the 2014 Farm Bill that included approval of food aid reforms which will allow us to feed almost 800,000 more people! Leave your questions for Tonya about what CARE’s role in this was, and what implications it will have for the people we serve in 86 countries around the world.

 

You can also tweet your questions with the hashtag #CAREAsktheExpert or leave them on our Facebook page. Tonya will answer questions from our blog, Facebook and Twitter.
