SOCIAL ACTION

From the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank comes a plea that we contact both Senators, Casey and Toomey, in support of a senate bill to protect SNAP (food stamps):

The House of Representatives voted last week for a farm bill that would turn the clock back on efforts to reduce hunger and hardship. That bill would kick up to 2 million people off of SNAP, including seniors, children, and veterans. It is harmfulunworkable, and wasteful.

The Senate bill reaffirms SNAP’s importance for struggling households that can’t afford a basic diet. Unlike the House bill, it focuses on improving program oversight and integrity while streamlining program operations to strengthen the program for the 1 in 8 Americans who use SNAP benefits to afford food for their families.

Take these steps to protect SNAP in the Senate Farm Bill:

  1. Call 1-888-398-8702 toll free.Enter your zip code to be connected to your Senators. Urge them to vote “Yes” on the Senate Agriculture Committee version of the Farm Bill (S. 3042), and to vote “No” on any amendments that would cut or weaken SNAP.
  2. Click to Tweet:Senate Ag Cmte #FarmBill protects SNAP & keeps food on the table for children, working families, seniors, veterans, ppl with disabilities, among others. We join @fractweets in urging @SenateFloor to vote NO on any amendments that would weaken #SNAP http://bit.ly/2HxmB0O
