Call Governor Charlie Baker at (617) 725-4005. Here is a script you can use for the call:
Hi, my name is [your name] from [your town]. My zip code is [zip code]. Federal nutrition programs are in jeopardy if Congress doesn't pass a new spending bill soon.
Please ask the Governor to urge President Trump and his colleagues in the U.S. Senate to reopen the federal government. For the 1 in 9 Massachusetts residents who rely on SNAP, this could mean struggling to put food on table as early as next month. I urge the governor to use his role as a national leader to protect our vulnerable neighbors.
Thank you for your time.
We know hunger is often silent, but together we can speak up and speak loudly. Thank you for lending your voice.
