Stamp Out Hunger and Ensure Nutrition Education: Have You Done Your Part?

Many nutrition programs that help reduce food insecurity and provide registered dietitian nutritionist-led nutrition education are housed in the Farm Bill, which is being debated on the Senate floor after being passed out of committee. Please take two minutes to participate in the Academy's action alert to help pass this important piece of legislation that also funds agriculture and human nutrition research.

Several amendments related to nutrition programs have been debated and voted on, thus far. Notable Senate amendments include:

  • Defeated: #948 introduced by Senator Pat Roberts (Kan.), which limits Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) eligibility and eliminates SNAP-Ed
  • Defeated: #931 introduced by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), which restores SNAP funding lost in committee bill
  • Defeated: #960 introduced by Senator Jim Inhofe (Okla.), which repeals nutrition entitlement programs and establishes a nutrition assistance block grant program
  • Passed: #992 introduced by Senators Al Franken (Minn.) and Roy Blunt (Mo.), which allows homebound seniors and persons with disabilities to use their SNAP benefits at retailers that offer home-delivery services
  • Passed: #1056 introduced by Senator David Vitter (La.), which bans convicted murderers, pedophiles and rapists from getting SNAP.

If you have not contacted your senators through the Academy's action alert, please do so as soon as possible.
