Congress is now finalizing their 2018 Farm Bill, the bill responsible for feeding thousands of hungry and vulnerable Pennsylvanians. G.T Thompson sits on the committee making the final decisions on this important legislation that will impact the future of our state.
Their most recent proposal includes HUGE cuts to important programs like SNAP and TEFAP. According to the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank and other Pennsylvania food pantries, SNAP provides 12 meals for every one they provide. TEFAP helps get healthy U.S. grown food to families in need and helps make sure food pantries have enough food to keep shelves stocked for people struggling with hunger.
Tell your Rep. GT Thompson to stop taking an ax to essential food assistance programs and stand with our families struggling with hunger.
Support SNAP & TEFAP for Pennsylvania in the Farm Bill
