Tell Congress: As millions remain jobless, protect food aid for children!

    1. Petition by

      Voices for America's Children

Unemployment remains high, and children are among the hardest hit. As parents nationwide struggle to find and keep jobs, more families are relying on food assistance just to put food on the table.

Over half of all households receiving food stamps have children, yet Congress may now take away these meals from our neediest. The congressional “super committee” in the coming months will cut trillions from government spending, and some members would cut vital support to the nation’s children in order to protect tax cuts for the wealthy.  

But with your help we can make sure that integral programs like food stamps are protected. Sign on to our petition and tell Congress: As millions remain jobless, protect food aid for children!

      Our government programs such as Social Services needs to be investigated for all the people in our country defrauding the system, there may be more there for the ones that really need the program and would use the services as they are supposed to be used.

      For many children, school meals and the CACFP subsidized meals provided in child care are the only meals that they get to eat each day. Protect food aid for children!
