Oppose Cuts To Food Assistance Programs

On May 23, 2017, the Trump administration released a budget proposal for federal agencies in Fiscal Year 2018, which includes major cuts to critical food assistance programs. The proposals outlined in the budget would drastically increase food insecurity for millions of people living in this country, with major cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP). The combined cuts would result in at least 4.5 billion fewer meals for families facing hunger every year

Message

Dear [Decision Maker],

As your constituent and a supporter of the Community FoodBank of New Jersey, I'm urging you to stand up for families in need by fighting back against President Trump's proposed budget which cuts the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP).



The combined cuts could result in at least 4.5 billion fewer meals for families facing hunger every year. I urge you to oppose any cuts to federal nutrition programs, like SNAP and TEFAP, that will harm families in your community who face hunger.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
