Federal nutrition programs are critical to helping families facing hunger. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps families make ends meet by stretching their grocery budgets. Sometimes called “food stamps,” those few SNAP dollars every week make all the difference in the world when it comes to putting nutritious meals on the table. The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) provides food banks with nutritious food from U.S. growers and producers and also helps transport and store the food. Without the program, less meals make it onto the plates of hungry families and farmers are forced to let fresh, nutritious food wither and rot.
But President Trump's latest federal budget takes direct aim at these programs and could result in at least 4.5 billion fewer meals to hungry families each year.
Send a message to Congress now – tell them to fight back against any attempts to cut federal nutrition programs like SNAP and TEFAP.
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Feeding America.
