Feeding America Strongly Opposes House Cuts To SNAP Program

May 10, 2012

"Feeding America is outraged by the House of Representatives vote today to drastically cut spending on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) by nearly $36 billion."

"Cutting SNAP at a time when the need for food assistance has never been greater, and the charitable system is stretched to the breaking point, is simply wrong."

"These cuts would be devastating for low-income families and for communities across the country."

"This vote is a wrongful departure from Washington's historic bipartisan commitment to protecting low-income safety net programs during deficit reduction efforts."
