NANASP Advocacy Toolkit - FY 24 Funding

Elevate your meal program funding with the power of social media! Use our sample social media posts and showcase your organization.

  • Don’t forget to tag your Members of Congress—they're active on social media and engaging them can amplify your message.
  • Use data to strengthen your message on social media. For instance, “We currently have X # of senior meal clients on waiting lists. Without additional funding in FY24, this list will lengthen leaving vulnerable seniors without vital meals.”
  • Tag NANASP so we can share your post and amplify your message!
