Live Twitter Chat about SNAP Cuts
On September 19, the House passed a nutrition-only Farm Bill that will slash $40 billion dollars from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, also known as food stamps). 1.5 billion meals will be lost during the fiscal year of 2014. That translates to millions of households across the United States facing the uncertainty of where their next meal is coming from, affecting every zip code and every demographic.
With this news, many supporters have questions about what this will mean to their community, and what exactly will happen next. Join Philabundance for a live Twitter chat on Friday, September 20, 2013 from 3 PM to 4 PM EST to get your questions answered. This is an opportunity to learn more about the implications of the Farm Bill, who will be affected, and how you can make a difference.
