USDA recently proposed a rule that would take away SNAP benefits from millions of kids, seniors and working families. In addition, the proposed rule would result in 500,000 children losing their school meals.
Tell USDA why SNAP is important to you and why this stricter rule would be harmful. Your personal comment to the note below is required to make sure USDA reviews it – they must read and record every unique comment they receive!
If you take action and have not already registered, you will receive periodic updates and communications from Feeding America.
Revision of Categorical Eligibility in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance - FNS-2018-0037
Dear Secretary Perdue,
I am writing to oppose the proposed rule that guts the Broad-Based Categorical Eligibility option in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The proposal would take away school meals from children, hurt seniors and families who save for the future, and punish workers for getting a raise. We should not punish children trying to thrive in the classroom or penalize people who work hard to take care of their families.
