Sign the Petition Today!
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the most effective anti-hunger program in America. In late March, Congress is poised to begin consideration of its FY2016 Budget Resolution, and SNAP (formerly food stamps) is being targeted. SNAP has extraordinary strengths, yet some would make disastrous changes to a program that serves millions of children, seniors, veterans, the disabled, jobless adults seeking work, and those working – often at multiple jobs – just to make ends meet. Cuts to SNAP have caused increased strain on our feeding programs with devastating results, and charities cannot make up the difference. We need your voice – and the voices of thousands of others – to say that Congress should support SNAP.
The Community FoodBank of New Jersey joins with our partners at the Food Research and Action Center in supporting this important program. Our goal is to show the wide support for SNAP from people across New Jersey, but we can only do this with your help! Sign the petition today and share it with your family and friends. Join us and tell Congress you want an end to hunger in America, not ill-considered budget proposals that would increase it.
