The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, is one of the most powerful tools we have to end childhood hunger. Today, 1 in 5 children are supported by the food they receive through SNAP. But this critical program does much more than fill a child’s empty stomach. It helps them grow up smarter, stronger and healthier.

Right now, Congress has an important opportunity to protect and strengthen SNAP as they put pen to paper on the Farm Bill, a once-every-five-years piece of legislation that governs agriculture and food programs.

Now is the time to act. Write to your members of Congress today. Your support can make a difference between families receiving the support and resources they need or more red tape from Washington.

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.

Protect and Strengthen SNAP in the Farm Bill

Dear [Decision Maker],

SNAP benefits are modest, averaging just $6 a day per person, and often don't cover the cost of a moderately priced meal. I ask you to protect kids by preserving the value of these SNAP benefits and fight against any cuts to the program.

This matters. SNAP supplements a family's food budget and is a safe and effective way to feed children. But the food provided by SNAP does much more than fill a child's empty stomach. It helps kids grow up smarter, stronger and healthier and that means a smarter, stronger and healthier nation.

As you begin to negotiate the 2023 Farm Bill, I urge you to seek opportunities to make the program stronger. Kids are counting on you.
