Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

ACT NOW!: Tell Congress to Oppose Proposed House Budget

Tell your U.S. representative:

• Oppose the proposed FY 2013 budget. If the extreme cuts are approved, most of our federal assistance programs will cease to exist by 2050.

• Don't cut SNAP! The proposed budget cuts SNAP by billions, sets new barriers to access the program, and caps funding levels. This could mean millions of Americans could get kicked off the program.

• The deal reached in the Budget Control Act of 2011 should not be broken. The lower spending level in this budget leads to exponentially higher cuts to programs for hungry and poor people and it eliminates the protections Congress agreed to in August.

Call your U.S. representative at 1-800-326-4941 by Thursday, March 29. If you're on Twitter, tweet your support for a circle of protection around programs for poor and hungry people.

We're getting ready to conduct OL at church.

I would greatly appreciate a sample letter which reflects the position of BFW regarding the Ryan proposed budget.

Do not cut SNAP! "As long as you did it for one of these . . ." is the Christian imperative we follow. It is built into every faith's beliefs. To show our gratitude, we do for others.
