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!
