Advocacy Alert

The House Agriculture Committee marked up its proposal for the 2018 Farm Bill, paving the way to send it to Congress. This bill would increase hunger and hardship by completely taking away, or cutting, SNAP benefits (food stamps) from many struggling families, people with disabilities, older workers, low-wage workers, and people temporarily between jobs.

Simply put, SNAP is our nation's strongest defense against hunger, and even at current funding levels, it falls short of the need. Take some time to learn about the effectiveness of SNAP, the program's impact on each county and congressional district in Pennsylvania, and why "block grants" actually mean cuts to the program.
