Partner for the Hunger Free Oregon

Tuesday & Wednesday, May 14 & 15

 

Wednesday, May 15th at 10:00am (Eastern Standard Time), the House Agriculture Committee will consider the 2013 Farm Bill. The proposed bill includes devastating cuts to the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly called food stamps).

 

 

IMPORTANT: Congressman Kurt Schrader is on the Agriculture Committee. If you live in his district, please call (202) 225-5711 or email him today!

If you are not in rep. Schrader’s district, please contact your federal representative.

Message to Congress:

  • Vote NO on any bill that cuts SNAP!
  • More than 800,000 Oregonians rely on SNAP to put food on the table, including thousands of children, seniors and people with disabilities.
  • Cuts to SNAP means thousands of Oregonians will have less $ for food, increasing hunger in our State.

Email Robyn if you have questions.
