Monday Morning--For Your Consideration!

today's action Protect federal nutrition programs for children

Right now 1 in 5 kids in America are at risk of hunger. There are federal nutrition programs exist to provide kids with the food they need to be healthy, happy and live up to their full potential. But some of those programs are now at risk.

If Congress cuts funding for poverty relieving programs like SNAP, it will affect millions of children and families, leaving them even more vulnerable to hunger. SNAP is vital for making sure kids all across America have access to the health, nutritious food they need to thrive - no matter what hard times or road bumps their families encounter.

For today's Daily Action, let Congress know that we can't afford to cut SNAP and leave our children hungry!
