Food Benefits Under Threat
Mar 14 , 2019/Category

We are calling on call congregants and visitors to this website to take action for those who depend on Food Stamps, now known as the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), to eat.

The Trump Administration’s proposed SNAP rule would time limit food benefits for unemployed and underemployed people who can’t document sufficient weekly work hours. They would lose SNAP eligibility after three months.

Anti-hunger advocates are urged to submit a comment expressing their strong opposition to the proposed rule during the 60-day public comment period that ends on April 2, 2019.

Tell the Trump Administration the proposed rule is harsh and unfair. It would:

Cause serious harm to individuals, communities, and the nation.

Fuel rates of hunger and poverty by denying vulnerable people nutrition assistance at a time when they most need it.

Do nothing to improve the health and employment of those impacted by the proposed rule.

Harm the economy, grocery retailers, and agricultural producers by reducing the amount of SNAP dollars available to spur local economic activity.

Sidestep Congress, which rejected these changes when it enacted the 2018 Farm Bill.
