Help Protect SNAP

The House is expected to vote on its Farm Bill (H.R.2) this week. Debate on the bill could begin as early as Wednesday evening, with a possible vote on Thursday or Friday. The time to act and demonstrate the overwhelming opposition to this bad bill is NOW.

Make sure Members of Congress get the message: don’t pass a Farm Bill that takes food out of the refrigerators and off the kitchen tables of people in need.

Actions to Take:
• Call the U.S. Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 today to be connected to your House representative. Urge him or her to vote “No” on the Farm Bill (H.R.2).

• Or Call Feeding America's toll free number: 1-888-398-8702. After a short message, you will be connected to your Representative's office after entering your zip code. Urge him or her to vote “No” on the Farm Bill (H.R.2).

• Tell your representative that just voting “No” is not enough. Encourage him or her to speak out on the House floor about the harmful impacts that the proposed changes to SNAP in H.R. 2 would have on working families earning low wages, seniors, children, veterans, and people with disabilities.
