March Action Alert: Tell Congress to Strengthen SNAP!
One of the strongest tools our nation has in combating hunger is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, also known as food stamps). Unfortunately, this vital program is under attack, threatening the food security of millions of families.
Promise the Children stands with MomsRising in speaking out to protect SNAP and the millions of people that depend on this vital program to feed their families. Tell Congress to strengthen SNAP ASAP – send a letter today!
Dear Members of Congress,
Moms, children, families, and caregivers across the country rely on the critical support of SNAP to close gaps in food insecurity and poverty. 1 in 8 Americans participate in the SNAP program in order to put food on the table for them and their families. SNAP is one of the strongest tools our nation has to combat hunger. SNAP also provides economic benefits for our country, since every SNAP dollar generates between $1.50 and $1.80 in economic activity.
As our elected leaders, we ask that you strengthen SNAP benefits and protect against attacks on this life-saving program, including cuts to funding and barriers to access, like work requirements and time limits. Our families are counting on you to stand up for hungry families!
