Act Now: Oppose the House Farm Bill

April 18, 2018

The House Agriculture Committee has released its draft of the farm bill. This bill not only sets most U.S. agriculture policies, but also sets policies for federal nutrition programs and humanitarian relief for hunger emergencies overseas.

The bill maintains and improves international food aid programs. However, it also proposes changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) that would put millions of Americans at risk of hunger.

Call (800-826-3688) or email your representative and tell them to protect SNAP and oppose the House Farm Bill as written

The proposed bill also imposes benefit and eligibility cuts in addition to stricter work requirements, in the name of getting SNAP recipients back to work. But SNAP already encourages work. When individuals can meet their basic needs, they don't need to worry about where their next meal will come from. Rather, they can focus on finding and keeping a job.

Call (800-826-3688) or email your representative and ask them for a farm bill that helps put the United States on track to end hunger in our country and save millions of lives overseas. 

When individuals can meet their basic needs, they don't need to worry about where their next meal will come from.
