MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger
This Is Hunger US Petition (Website)

Protect SNAP and the millions of Americans who cannot feed their families without it.

The results of the 2016 election had major consequences for our country. But for low-income families, the stakes could not be higher. 

President Trump and the Republican leadership in Congress have already indicated they plan to make drastic changes that will gut long-standing and vital programs for the most vulnerable Americans, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) has previously introduced dangerous proposals to change the structure of SNAP that will eviscerate the program and its funding. Now there is a real threat that his plan could advance, causing millions to suffer.

SNAP is the nation’s most important anti-hunger program and a major pillar of the nation’s safety net. It protects against hunger and lifts millions of people out of poverty. The magnitude of “reforms” likely to be introduced early in the Trump Administration would dramatically increase hunger and poverty.

Please join MAZON in urging Speaker Ryan to protect the SNAP program and the millions of Americans who cannot feed their families without it.

Dear Speaker Ryan,

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the nation’s most important anti-hunger program and a major pillar of the nation’s vital safety net. SNAP effectively protects against hunger and lifts millions of people out of poverty.

As a supporter of MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, I urge you not to impose harmful structural changes and cuts in funding that would decimate SNAP and the lives of the millions of Americans who cannot feed their families without it.
