Fight Hunger Now: Stop Cuts to Vital Nutrition Programs

The House is currently debating a "nutrition only" Farm Bill that would deny up to 6 million people access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The bill would cut $40 billion from the program over 10 years, leaving millions to struggle with food insecurity. Please urge Congress to oppose these cuts.

The House's proposed bill would have detrimental effects to vital nutrition programs, such as:

  • Denying up to 6 million struggling Americans access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). This group includes up to 4 million poor, unemployed, childless adults who live in areas of high unemployment; 1.8 million low-income working families and low-income seniors; and 170,000 low-income veterans.
  • Eliminating 1.5 billion meals per year for the next 10 years for struggling families.
  • Weakening Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Education (SNAP-Ed), a program that teaches and empowers individuals to make healthy choices on a limited budget.

The House is expected to vote on this bill in the next few days. Tell your Congressman to oppose these cuts. Fill out the Farm Bill Action Alert today!
