Join the National Call-in Day Tomorrow, September 13th, to Protect SNAP in the Farm Bill
Congress needs to hear from you TOMORROW that access to SNAP should be protected and not harmed during farm bill negotiations.
Activate your network to join Feeding America's national SNAP call-in day on September 13th. The below four California Representatives were chosen to participate in negotiations to reconcile the starkly divergent farm bills passed by the Senate and House earlier this summer.
They need to hear from you:
Sample script:Hello. My name is ________. I live in ______, CA. I am calling to ask Representative ______ to ensure SNAP is protected by adopting the Senate's bipartisan, common-sense Farm Bill in the Farm Bill Conference Committee. Unlike the House's Farm Bill, the Senate version protects our low-income residents from harmful and unnecessary barriers to food access. The best outcome for California is a strong, bipartisan farm bill that protects SNAP. Thank you.
