Every 5 years, the Farm Bill authorizes programs like SNAP and other federal nutrition programs that serve tens of millions of Americans each year. It presents a unique opportunity to advance long-overdue policy solutions to the food security challenges of many special populations that MAZON prioritizes.
The next Farm Bill must protect against hunger by strengthening SNAP and other essential federal nutrition assistance programs, remove barriers to access for struggling individuals and families, and increase access to affordable, nutritious foods for vulnerable populations to support good nutrition and health.
Regardless of circumstance, no one deserves hunger. Every person should be able to feed themselves and their families with dignity and choice. The federal government fulfills this moral calling and our collective responsibility to care for those among us who struggle with hunger.
