Urging our nation's leaders to end hunger

Quote of the Day: Lori Silverbush

"[T]he [SNAP] program was designed to grow when the economy shrinks, and it's doing what it was designed to do. People who are trying to cut it like to point to that as if it's some example of 'it's bloated, it's full of waste'—truthfully, it's only big because the need is so big."

—Lori Silverbush, co-director of the documentary A Place at the Table

Call or email your members of Congress and tell them to ensure a place at the table for all people by protecting and strengthening the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps) and international food aid in the farm bill.
