Protect SNAP

Congress has voted to approve a new Farm Bill (H.R.2 - Agriculture Improvement Act of 2018) and it is a huge victory for SNAP and the millions of Americans who count on it to help feed their families. The conference agreement, a compromise between the seperate Senate and House bills that passed in June, was finally filed after months of vigorous debate.

The work, however, is far from over. We know that in 2019, the Trump Administration wants to change rules related to SNAP work requirements, making it harder for people with inconsistent work hours, or who are struggling to find work, to keep their benefits. The Coalition Against Hunger is committed to ensuring such changed won't happen, and we'll need your help when the time comes.
