Join a Nationwide SNAP Call-In Day Tomorrow, Sept. 17

From our friends at FRAC.

Do you oppose cutting money for nutrition from the Farm Bill? If so, join in a nationwide SNAP Call-In Day tomorrow, Tuesday, September 17 to urge House members to vote "NO" on the nutrition-only farm bill (The Nutrition Reform and Work Opportunity Act) that cuts $40 billion/10 years from SNAP. The House is expected to vote on the bill later this week. House Democrats are in agreement to vote NO, so advocacy efforts should be targeted to House Republicans.

  • Message: I urge you to vote NO on the nutrition-only farm bill to cut $40 billion/10 years from SNAP. This bill would increase hunger in America.
  • Call-In Number: 866-456-8824 - Special thanks to our friends at Feeding America for the toll-free number.

Why should you call? Read FRAC President Jim Weill's commentary on SNAP cuts in The Hill.
