to find your Congress member and to express your opposition to any budget proposal that cuts SNAP/CalFresh or changes its funding structure.
Specific asks to members and staff:
- Oppose any budget resolution that requires cuts or would change the financing structure in key programs like SNAP that help struggling families afford the basics, including food on the table, a roof over their heads, and access to health care.
- Oppose any budget that includes "reconciliation instructions" that would create a fast-track process to force cuts to mandatory spending programs like SNAP/CalFresh, Medicaid/Medi-Cal, SSI, and TANF/CalWORKS.
- Oppose any legislation that would allow states to change or eliminate the federal guaranteed benefit for basic needs, such as food, shelter or medical care, for eligible participants.
Don't cut, protect and strengthen SNAP/CalFresh!
CalFresh helps struggling families and workers in our state put healthy food on their tables, improves academic and economic opportunity, and boosts our national, state, and local economies.
- Remind your Representative that before we made a national commitment to end hunger, some areas of the country had serious problems with hunger, including children suffering from malnutrition. We don't want to go back to that.
