The Farm Bill
The Farm Bill is a pieces of legislation that governs America’s nutrition and agriculture policy including hunger-relief programs.
WHAT IT MEANS FOR HUNGRY AMERICANS:
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is funded by the Farm Bill. Dramatic cuts are being considered by Congress right now on top of cuts that already went into effect on November 1.
HOW DOES IT AFFECT YOU:
Ending hunger in America requires a partnership between business, charity and government. A strong Farm Bill will put us closer to our vision of a hunger-free America.
WHAT CAN WE DO:
Contact your Member of Congress and tell them to visit their local food bank to learn about hunger during recess.
