Billions in cuts to programs feeding hungry people?
We don't think so!
Congress Proposes Up to $20.5 Billion in Cuts to SNAP (Food Stamps) The House and Senate Agriculture Committees have voted to approve the Farm Bill which funds U.S. farm, food and nutrition policy. As part of the vote, the Senate approved cutting the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps or SNAP) by $4.1 billion over 10 years. The House cuts were considerably deeper, at $20.5 billion.
SNAP helps hungry families purchase the food they need at
the grocery store. Take action now to send a letter to Senators Murray and Cantwell urging them to oppose cuts to SNAP.
