Urge Congress to Defend and Protect Programs That Reduce Hunger and Poverty
In the midst of all that is going on in the world, there are some things we know for sure. We know that the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps) is the first line of defense against hunger. We know that by providing monthly benefits to over 650,000 Marylanders to purchase food, SNAP plays a critical role in reducing hunger, poverty, and improving family security, child and adult health, and productivity.
Urge your Members of Congress to support SNAP in the upcoming 2018 Farm Bill by signing this letter. The letter is customizable, so feel free to personalize it by explaining how SNAP has made a difference in your life or your community.
Pass the Maryland Cares for Kids Act
Support children in families struggling to get by on low wages by removing school meal fees for 45,632 low-income students in Maryland. Learn more.
