Let Congress know what SNAP means

#FillUpYourPlate to Tell Rep. McGovern What SNAP Means to You

This Wednesday, Feb. 25, the House Agriculture Committee will hold its first hearing on SNAP. Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) is calling on anti-hunger advocates from across the country "to share what SNAP means to you." Please join us in participating in FillUpYourPlate and help protect SNAP.

"As a member of the House Agriculture Committee, and a strong supporter of the SNAP program, I will fight any proposed changes that make it more difficult for the hungry in America to get the food they need. We cannot balance the budget on the backs of poor people."    -Rep. Jim McGovern
