by June 14. Attached is a letter outlining the terrible impacts of the proposed House Farm Bill --- along with the list of Washington organizations that signed on last year. Our goal: every organization that signed on last year will do it again - and get two more organizations in their community to sign on.
We will deliver this letter to every House member before they begin debate the following week.
In the 14th hungriest state in the country, with demand at food banks up 35%, and further state and local cuts to the safety net expected, Washington families need our Representatives to take a strong stand against a Farm Bill that cuts SNAP.
What to do now: Take 2 Steps for Action
2. Send this letter on to your partner organizations and coalitions for their sign on by JUNE 14.
Thank Reps. McDermott, Smith, Heck and Kilmer for co-sponsoring
H. Res. 90 and urge them to stand by their pledge: Vote no on a Farm Bill if it cuts SNAP.
Thank you. We are very concerned that the House will damage the program that does the best job fighting hunger in our communities - we appreciate your strong stand alongside hungry families.
