Last week the U.S. House of Representatives passed a harmful House Farm Bill that will take food out of the refrigerators and off the tables of millions of people in need, including children, seniors, and veterans in Maine.
Protecting and strengthening the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—not cutting it, as the House Farm Bill does—is one of the most efficient and effective solutions to ending hunger and poverty in America.
Coming to a vote this week, the bipartisan Senate Farm Bill strengthens SNAP and avoids harming SNAP households.
Now is the time to contact Senator Collins and Senator King and urge them to:
“Support the bipartisan Senate Farm Bill protecting and strengthening SNAP, and oppose any amendments that would cut SNAP or make harmful changes taking away food assistance from struggling families.”
Thank you for speaking up on behalf of Mainers in need!
