SNAP is the most effective anti-hunger program, especially during a crisis. Congress must #BoostSNAPNow!
Since the start of the pandemic, Congress has passed 3 major legislative packages address coronavirus, but unfortunately, none of these bills have met the calls of anti-hunger community to expand SNAP which include:
On May 15th, the HEROES Act was passed by the House of Representatives. The HEROES act included the above asks as well as additional funding to SNAP and child nutrition programs. The Senate has yet to pass or any other additional Coronavirus response bill. It is expected some version will be introduced and voted on in July.
Our senators and their colleagues need to hear from constituents how important it is that they vote to increase SNAP and support for federal nutrition program as soon as possible. Click here to send a message and then share the link with your friends and family in other states.
