Advocate for Healthy Living
A top priority for Congress this summer will be to reconcile the Senate and House Farm Bills. Part of this will include vital funding support for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). We need to defend SNAP against potential cuts which would take away food from children, older Americans, people with disabilities and veterans.
To show your support you can add your voice to our advocacy efforts from where-ever you are, at any time.
It can be as simple as sharing a post or retweeting a message of support.
Too many families — including children, seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities — struggle to make ends meet. SNAP works to put food on the table and ensure families don’t have to make tough choices between food, gas to get to work, medications, or rent. Tell Congress to Protect SNAP
