The way we treat hungry families shows who we are as a nation.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps families make ends meet by stretching their grocery budgets. Sometimes called "food stamps," those few SNAP dollars every week make all the difference in the world when it comes to putting nutritious meals on the table.
With so many vital public programs under threat of cuts under the current Congress, we have to act now to make it clear that cutting hunger assistance programs like SNAP is unacceptable.
We need to protect this vital program to ensure millions of Americans don't face the pain of an empty stomach.
Send a message to Congress now — tell them to fight against any attempts to cut SNAP funding.
Dear Representative / Senator,
Along with Feeding America supporters all across the nation, I'm urging you to stand up for families in need by fighting against cuts or harmful changes to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

Even though SNAP benefits are not enough to feed a family, they help recipients stretch their grocery budgets and put nutritious meals on the table. Any cuts or harmful changes to SNAP funding would put millions of families at risk, including tens of thousands in your community.
Research from Moody's Analytics shows that for every dollar spent on SNAP, $1.70 is put back into the U.S. economy. SNAP allows all families to participate in their local economies, and makes our communities stronger.
The Feeding America network of food banks and pantries help millions of families who struggle with food insecurity. But the fact is, only when charity and federal programs works hand-in-hand can we begin to end hunger in America. Please stand up for the people back home who rely on SNAP, and reject any cuts or harmful changes to this vital program.
