Hunger Alert: Trump Administration Attacks SNAP


On July 24, the Trump Administration issued its latest attack on low-income families, targeting the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The proposed rule would take food assistance away from 3 million people by making them ineligible to participate in SNAP, the nation’s first line of defense against hunger. 

The Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) has developed a platform where you can submit your comments to the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service opposing this proposed rule. The 60-day public comment period ends on September 23. Let the administration know that the proposed rule would increase hunger and poverty in this country, especially for working families with children whose net incomes are below the poverty line. Weakening SNAP only weakens our country.
