Every month families on SNAP need a miracle to make their food last the month. This Chanukah, while we celebrate the miracle of oil lasting eight nights, give hungry families hope that their miracle might turn into reality. Tell Congress to protect SNAP. 

Congress is currently negotiating the Farm Bill, and with it, the fate of hunger-relief programs like SNAP, the cornerstone of our nation’s nutrition safety net. But instead of debating the adequacy of the program’s funding, they are debating how much to cut. Simply put, any outcome from these discussions will be unacceptable for the struggling Americans who rely on SNAP to put food on the table.

Please call your Members of Congress on Wednesday December 4th, 2013 to voice support for SNAP.  

Here’s how:

  • Call toll-free to 1-888-398-8702
  • Listen to the pre-recorded message and enter your zip code when prompted. Press 1 to be connected to your Representative first. When you are connected, state that you are a constituent and give your name and the town you are calling from. 
  • Let them know you are calling about the farm bill and deliver this important message: ”As your constituent, I urge you to protect SNAP from cuts.” 
  • Call back to repeat the process for your two senators, pressing 2 to be connected to the first senator and 3 to be connected to the second senator.

Please spread the word and urge others in your network to call!

Thank you!
