COVID-19 Crisis: Support Comprehensive Relief

During the COVID-19 pandemic, food assistance programs are especially critical to protect individuals from hunger. Join us to advocate for a comprehensive relief package to help millions of struggling Americans during this crisis.

Congress is considering a robust bill with important investments in SNAP, WIC, senior meals, and emergency food, but reports are that some of the proposed investments may be cut before the bill is brought for a vote.

Keep the pressure on - time is running out. Take action today to urge Congress to protect funding for SNAP, WIC, senior meals, and TEFAP.

I am writing to urge you to pass a COVID-relief bill that provide provides critical nutrition assistance and other relief.

The bipartisan bill that is being considered includes important provisions to strengthen SNAP, WIC, senior meals, and TEFAP. These programs are critical to making sure that all our neighbors have the food they need. Reports are that some of these nutrition investments are at risk of being cut in the final package.

Please weigh in with Congressional Leaders to make sure the final bill includes:

15% increase in SNAP benefits

Temporary increase in WIC benefits to purchase more fruits and vegetables

$700 million in TEFAP

$750 million for Older Americans Act nutrition programs



Thank you for working to secure the resources our community needs to ensure no one goes hungry during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sincerely,
