SNAP Action Alert: Take Action Against Hunger Nationwide
In the next few weeks, the US Congress will be debating extensive budget cuts to SNAP, the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (formerly known as Food Stamps). The current House proposal would cut $40 billion from the program and end assistance for 4 to 6 million low-income people in the US, including 41,000 Minnesotans.
The SNAP program is a powerful anti-hunger tool that helps struggling families in weak economic times, and these cuts could seriously undermine other anti-poverty efforts. We believe that the proposed budget cuts go against the basic values articulated in the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim religious traditions.
We need your help! Our US Representatives need to hear that their constituents support continued funding to SNAP. Do you have a few minutes to call or email your representative and express your concerns about cuts to SNAP?
