Action Alert on USDA proposal to change SNAP Eligibility

The White House has proposed changing SNAP eligibility in a way that would end benefits for 3 million low-income working Americans and, according to their own new analysis, would put free school meals in jeopardy for as many as 1 million low-income kids. A new analysis shows that the proposal would put 1,000,000 children at risk of losing the free school lunch benefits that they need to thrive. For many vulnerable children, free lunch at school might be the only nutritious meal they can count on all day. Because of the swift and loud public outcry and in light of their new analysis, the USDA has reopened the comment period for just two weeks. Comments will be accepted until November 1, 2019
