Demand Congress Continue Funding Food Stamps, End Childhood Hunger

    1. Sponsored by

      No Kid Hungry

Nearly one in four American kids can't count on having enough to eat. You can’t see it just by looking, but it lives next door.  Hungry kids struggle to concentrate at school, are more likely to have behavior problems, and are more likely to get sick than their well-nourished peers.

Now Congress is considering a budget cut that will put even more children at risk of hunger.

Recently, the House Agriculture Committee indicated that they would consider cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) over reducing automatic subsidies to farmers.

More than 20 million American children depend on SNAP, or food stamps, to provide adequate nutrition.

In this tough economic time, we shouldn't be making it more difficult for families to feed their children.

Right now, Republican Budget Chairman Paul Ryan is weighing the proposed cuts to SNAP. He needs to hear the public demand that Congress continue funding food stamps at their current level.

Join the No Kid Hungry campaign and take action today. Tell Chairman Ryan that cutting SNAP means he's contributing to the childhood hunger crisis.

      As an single adult worrying about where my next meal is going to come from is a frightening thought. I could not imagine how a parent would feel. Please do the right thing and continue funding for food stamps for those less fortunate, especially during these times of economic hardship.

      Ok Ryan, Now you are wanting to cut the the food budget for CHILDREN! But you are still wanting the CORPORATE FARM SUBSIDES to receive TAX PAYER MONEY! If you REALLY want to dedcut the DEFICIT, you would have the subsides for corporate farms, gas. oil, coal STOPPED! Ryan you also DEMAND that ALL CORPORATIONS pay their fair share of TAXES and NOT REDUCE the TAX RATE of the CORPORATIONS or the minority 2% of our population, WEALTHY! All you and the Republicans are doing is pushing the middle class into a deeper hole and push the greed of corproations and the wealthy up. You so disgust me.
