Oregon Food Bank Action Alert: Ask President Obama to support SNAP

January 24, 2012 at 6:27 am Leave a comment

(Oregon Food Bank Action Alert)
Please take a moment to send an email to the President urging him to support the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in his fiscal year 2013 budget proposal.
Hunger, food insecurity, joblessness, and low wages currently affect very large numbers of people in the U.S.—especially young adults, parents, children, seniors and people with disabilities—and these problems are expected to persist at unacceptably high levels. In difficult economic times, it is more important than ever to support SNAP, a program that helps people obtain adequate amounts of food throughout the month.
In 2010, Congress cut future SNAP benefits and we hope that you will ask the President to continue his support for the full restoration of those benefits before cuts take effect in 2013. Cuts to SNAP would result in higher levels of hunger and food insecurity throughout the country.

Thank you for your ongoing support for SNAP and nutrition programs,
