  • Listen to the pre-recorded message and enter your zip code when prompted.
  • Connect to your Representative first. Once you are connected to your Representative, state that you are a constituent and give your name and your hometown. Be sure to give the name of the food bank or local agency you are affiliated with as well.
  • Let them know what legislation you are calling about and deliver your message.
  • Dial back in to make sure you talk to both of your Senators and your Representative
