Advocacy Alert: Tell Congress to Protect SNAP!

The House Agriculture Committee recently released their proposed Farm Bill, which cuts nearly $30 billion dollars from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) over the next 10 years. This will drastically reduce support for the millions of people in this country who are struggling during a time of increasing food insecurity.

In addition, Summer EBT, Puerto Rico’s Nutrition Assistance Program, and The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) — programs whose benefits are tied to the SNAP Thrifty Food Plan — would also experience cuts. The House Farm Bill proposal poses a serious threat to the health and wellbeing of the more than 41.4 million people who rely on SNAP to put food on the table.

It is crucial that advocates from across the country speak with one voice urging House Members to support SNAP by opposing the House Farm Bill, which would cut benefits to the program. We must be clear: No bill is better than a bad bill.
