Urge Congress to #BoostSNAPBefore COVID-19, there were nearly 40 million people facing food insecurity. Now, with skyrocketing unemployment, we expect that there are over 80 million people at risk of hunger, and the numbers are still rising. Congress must act immediately, particularly since the Administration has failed to fully meet the needs of all those facing hunger.
And in this moment, SNAP’s unique value can help strengthen the recovery for individuals and communities ravaged by the pandemic by — providing support to anyone who needs it without judgment, showing recipients both dignity and respect, and providing life-saving benefits that keep Americans healthy, safe, and well-nourished, and boosting economic activity to support local businesses and workers throughout the food chain.
