Victory! But food assistance is stillon Congress’ chopping block

Our pressure on Congress is working, C! Last week, the House voted down the Farm Bill, which included cuts to SNAP benefits – a victory for the millions of older Americans that rely on this life-saving food assistance program.

Now, members of Congress are planning on a new vote for the Farm Bill that will still include these harmful cuts to the nutrition program – and they need to hear from you.Send a letter to your Representative and demand that the next Farm Bill keeps seniors from going hungry!
