Use those 30 seconds to speak out against hunger and support SNAP!

The U.S. House of Representatives Budget Committee presented their proposed budget yesterday – and it doesn’t look good for Americans in need of food assistance. The Senate Budget Committee is expected to present their proposed budget today and we’re expecting similar harmful proposals in their budget, as well. Find out more about the budget process below.

Anti-hunger advocates across the nation are joining forces to tell Congress not to take meals away from Americans struggling with hunger. Take action now to tell Congress to protect food assistance programs that work.

YOU CAN HELP

Visit the Food Research and Action Center’s (FRAC) website to sign their petition telling Congress you don’t support a budget that will increase hunger in America. Please sign on no later than March 24th.

Thank you for taking the time to support this important effort to protect programs like SNAP that are proven to reduce hunger.

The House Budget Committee’s proposed budget this year included something not very common – “reconciliation instructions.”  Reconciliation requires committees to identify savings from their specific programs – including $1 billion from Agriculture programs (which includes many programs that provide food assistance to Americans) and making harmful administrative changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Find about more about the federal budget process or the budget reconciliation process on the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities website.
