Every five years, Congress has the opportunity to pass a strong Farm Bill that makes investments in the critical federal programs that help individuals and families keep food on the table. This legislation can strengthen almost every federal nutrition program that helps ease the strain and stress of hunger in communities across the country.
United Way asks Congress to prioritize protecting and strengthening the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), which is vital to putting food on the table and improving food security for those who are hungry, especially children and families. SNAP has and continues to stabilize families when their assets and incomes are limited and ensures that babies, mothers, children, and families have access to nutritious food in tough times, and must be protected and strengthened, as too many American kids and families continue to struggle with hunger.
Let your Congressional Leaders know that strengthening families starts with access to nutritional food and ask that they support 2023 Farm Bill reauthorization.
