Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the nation’s first line of defense against hunger. SNAP and other anti-hunger programs are critical to keep families afloat. These efficient, economy-boosting programs should be strengthened during this pandemic to be even more effective at fighting hunger.

Take The Pledge
