Strategies to Stop SNAP Proposals that Take Away Food Assistance from Millions
April 24, 2018
Tuesday, April 24, 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. Eastern Time
SNAP, the nation’s most effective anti-hunger program, is under attack in the 2018 Farm Bill that’s moving through the House right now, possibly reaching the House floor as early as the week of May 7. The 2018 Farm Bill expected to be approved by the House Committee on Agriculture would make it harder for millions of people to put food on the table by taking away or reducing SNAP benefits for many struggling Americans, including parents raising kids, people with disabilities, older adults, and people who are working but struggling to get enough hours or get by on low wages. Many children will lose access to free school meals, too.
Please join this webinar to learn more about how the Farm Bill moving to the House floor would harm SNAP participants and communities across the country, the best messages to use when talking about the Farm Bill, and actions you can take in the coming days and weeks to protect SNAP. This webinar is co-sponsored by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the Coalition on Human Needs, Feeding America, and the Food Research & Action Center.
Please note that this webinar is geared towards advocates; it is not for legislative staff or members of the media and is not on the record.
