Thank you for giving a voice to hungry Americans Legislative Update:
House Fails to Pass Farm Bill
Yesterday the House of Representatives failed to pass the Farm Bill. We can consider this vote a significant victory for Americans struggling with hunger. As you know, SNAP is critical for our clients. All of us at Feeding America deeply appreciate supporters like you who banded with us in opposition to this catastrophic bill.

What happens next is uncertain. The House will go back to the drawing board to draft a new bill. Whether the Agriculture Committee will reduce the SNAP cuts, increase the SNAP cuts, or adjust the commodities title is unknown. We can expect the next couple of months to be very fluid. Feeding America will continue to keep you updated as the debate unfolds.

Don’t wait: send Congress the message now that a Farm Bill shouldn’t increase hunger»

Signed. Thanks J.L. Because about 50% of Americans live in poverty, we need fixes like the SNAP program to make it possible to pay for essentials.

We in America have always taken care of our hungry. Under the current corporate capitalism, we have lost our commitment to our poor. We must continue to fight these efforts to erode our programs to help our poor. At the same site is another petition asking the Representatives/Senators to visit a food bank. I think this is a great idea and would give human faces to the people who need the SNAP program. Please sign and share!
