TELL CONGRESS: Support Kids. Strengthen SNAP.

Right now, Senate leadership is negotiating the next coronavirus relief package. The draft proposal released on July 27, however, does NOT contain policies to strengthen SNAP and extend Pandemic EBT, programs that are crucial for hungry kids and their families. This is unacceptable. Hungry kids and their families need the relief that these programs can provide.

The combination of SNAP and Pandemic EBT is one of the most effective ways to feed kids during the pandemic. Together, they make sure families can purchase the groceries they need to feed their kids when money is tight. And, as jobs are lost and entire industries are disrupted, SNAP will also help our nation recover. That's because SNAP feeds families and stimulates our economy.

Tell Senators Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer to include SNAP in the next relief package. Tell the Senators from your state to also weigh in strongly, telling Senate leadership that SNAP must be included. Your support can make a big difference in the lives of hungry children. Thanks for making your voice heard.

Personalizing your letter below will go further. To make your message more effective, please share why it's important to you to feed kids and families in need.

Message

Strengthen SNAP in the next coronavirus relief package

Dear [Decision Maker],



I am urging the Senate to:

* Temporarily increase the maximum SNAP benefit amount by at least 15% and increasing the minimum benefit from $16 to $30 for all SNAP households.

* Extend the distribution of P-EBT until September 30, 2021. Extending this program, which is slated to expire on June 30, will ensure that vulnerable families that rely on school meals have the resources they need during the hard summer ahead and, if needed, into the following the school year.

* Expand eligibility for P-EBT to include children under six who would otherwise receive free meals through childcare providers.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
