Current Issues

SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, provides food assistance to millions of Americans. It's our nation's first line of defense against hunger. Recently, both the Senate and the House passed their versions of the Farm Bill, the legislation that funds SNAP. While the Senate version of the bill protects this program, the House version of the Farm Bill proposes drastic cuts that we believe could cause widespread hunger. We're hopeful that the reconciliation process between these two versions of the bill will result in a strong SNAP program.
