Recent cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) already mean there are $36 fewer dollars a month available to a family of four who is struggling to put food on the table. The result will create even greater challenges for the 1 in 6 households who are faced with too few resources to meet their family’s nutritional needs.
As Congress debates the Farm Bill even more drastic cuts are being considered that would amount to $40 billion reductions in SNAP (formerly known as food stamps) over 10 years and reduce access to food for thousands of North Carolina’s unemployed and low-income working families.
Families continue to struggle to feed their families as the holidays approach and it is critical that the North Carolina federal delegation vote in the best interest of their constituents and conscience and reject the House proposal for the Farm Bill.
Please take a moment to send a message to your Representative and Senators to urge them to reject the House Farm Bill which would leave families without enough food on the table. Tell them to support the important role of SNAP for supporting struggling families in a jobless recovery.
