The Trump Administration's US Department of Agriculture is looking to impose stricter rules on the largest food assistance program in the country. We need your help to tell them punishing Americans looking for jobs will only lead to more hungry people in our country.
Americans working hard to look for a job shouldn't also have to be worried about looking for their next meal.
Your personal comment to the note below is required to make sure the Trump Administration reviews it. Tell them why Americans who have lost their jobs shouldn't have their food cut, too – and the Trump Administration will have to read it!
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Feeding America.
Oppose stricter time limits to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
Dear Secretary of Agriculture,
I am writing to oppose stricter time limits to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). There are already strict rules for people who don't have children or dependents (able bodied adults without dependents -- ABAWDs) to get food assistance through SNAP. We should not make the existing harsh rules even worse by taking away state flexibility or exposing more people to time-limited benefits. Increasing the ability of USDA to deny state waivers for easing harsh SNAP time limits and expanding the people these strict rules apply to will only increase the number of people facing hunger in this country.
