SNAP (formerly food stamps) is being targeted for Budget Cuts - Online Petition

See below for announcements about a petition to support SNAP from Food Research and Action Center and the Coalition on Human Needs .

Next week, Congress is poised to begin consideration of its FY2016 Budget Resolution – and SNAP (formerly food stamps) is being targeted. SNAP has extraordinary strengths, yet some would make disastrous changes to a program that serves millions of children, seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, jobless adults seeking work, and those working – often at multiple jobs – just to make ends meet. We need your voice – and the voices of thousands of others - to say that Congress should support SNAP.
Our goal is to show the wide support for SNAP from people across the country, but we can only do this with your help! Sign the petition today and share it widely with your family and friends. Join us and tell Congress you want an end to hunger in America, not ill-considered budget proposals that would increase it.
Please sign and share the “Support SNAP” petition before March 24th.

Sample Tweet for Sharing: Join me and @fractweets in urging Congress to support #SNAP. Sign this petition today. bit.ly/1FUaioE
