The Supplemental Nutrition
Assistance Program will be under a microscope this year as Congress
discusses reauthorization of the Farm Bill. Now is the time to let our
Congressional delegation know that we should strengthen this important
safety net program.
Please sign your
organization on to this letter from the Food Research and Action Center
that urges our Washington Congressional delegation to strengthen and
protect SNAP in the Farm Bill reauthorization process. The deadline is this Friday, April 6.
Copies of the letter will be hand delivered to Senators Cantwell and
Murray and to each of our Representatives while they are home on spring
recess. Once you have signed onto the letter, please forward this request to everyone in your network who represents an organization that has an interest in protecting this important program.
The mission of Northwest Harvest is to provide nutritious food to hungry people statewide in a manner that respects their dignity, while fighting to eliminate hunger. Our vision is that ample nutritious food is available to everyone in Washington state.
