Today I'm lobbying to prevent hunger. Join me in speaking out!

By Bridget Moix, November 29, 2018

Today I am joining more than 400 Quakers and friends on Capitol Hill. Each of us will be meeting with our legislators and their staff, and urging them to preserve SNAP, America’s most effective anti-hunger program. At stake is whether Congress will take food assistance away from people struggling to find work.

I need your help to drive home our message. Will you send a letter to your legislators now?

We are at a critical moment. Congressional leaders are in the midst of final negotiations on the farm bill and the future of SNAP. The consequences of these negotiations could be severe and long-lasting for SNAP and the 40 million Americans who rely on the program to prevent food insecurity.

Amid the gridlock and partisanship on Capitol Hill, with your help, we believe we can win this.
