Washington, D.C. – Bread for the World released the following statement in response to the Trump administration’s final rule requiring stricter work requirements and time limits on adults participating in SNAP. The following can be attributed to David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World:
“This rule will make it more difficult for low-income adults to access Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—a change that could kick hundreds of thousands of people off the program. Most low-income adults on SNAP who can work do work.
“The rule also ignores that there are still millions of Americans who face barriers to employment, lack transportation, or live in areas where the economy has not recovered. God teaches us that we are not to withhold nourishment from anyone. We oppose the administration’s decision and urge them to immediately withdraw this rule.”
Climate Change Worsens Hunger in Latino/a Communities
Climate change threatens the traditions and lifestyles of Indigenous people.
While climate change impacts everyone, regardless of race, policies and practices around climate have historically discriminated against and excluded people of color.
“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in faith.” These words from Colossians 2:6 remind us of the faith that is active in love for our neighbors.
The Bible on...
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is designed to respond to changes in need, making it well suited to respond to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bread for the World and its partners are asking Congress to provide $200 million for global nutrition.
In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
