ACTION ALERT: Let’s Protect SNAP

Let’s Protect SNAP

 

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, is the nation’s most effective anti-hunger program. It helps 1 in 9 Iowans put food on the table and keeps nearly 70,000 Iowans out of poverty. 

Legislation governing SNAP is part of the Farm Bill, which expires in September and must be renewed. Harmful, partisan language that would take away or cut food assistance for many of the 360,000 Iowans who rely on SNAP to help make ends meet—over 70 percent of whom are in families with children—is making its way through the U.S. House right now. 

Please join us for a briefing webinar Monday, May 7 at 1 p.m. to learn more about SNAP proposals in Congress, where Iowa’s delegation stands, and how you can encourage Congress to pass a bipartisan Farm Bill that protects SNAP.
