Fewer meals=more families struggling with hungerCall to Action: Major federal nutrition programs at risk  

The 2018 farm bill is the nation’s largest legislative effort to address hunger and provide vital resources for communities nationwide. We’re encouraging our hunger advocates to contact their Congressional member and ensure they vote to protect the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) and other food assistance programs from these cuts. 40% of the people who benefit from SNAP are children. Another 25% are seniors, the disabled and vets. The majority of the remainder are working people.

Below are some talking points you can make:

  • The farm bill sets food and farm priorities by developing policies and funding programs that provide a safety net for farmers, grocers and low-income Americans;
  • The farm bill is the largest legislative effort to address hunger and provide vital resources for farmers, grocers and low-income Americans;
  • SNAP puts food back in the hands of 739,000 of Central Florida’s most vulnerable – kids, seniors and people with disabilities;
  • If all the proposed cuts are approved by Congress, upwards of 32 million meals will disappear from our community every year.
