Staten Island Hunger Task Force

SAVE SNAP! FIGHT HUNGER! Call Congressman Donovan Now

Congress has introduced a bill that slashes the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP provides meals to millions of Americans every single year, including 1 in every 4 children in this country and over 1 in 10 residents of Staten Island.

SNAP brings more than $100 million in federal dollars annually to Staten Island, supporting our local businesses as well as our friends and neighbors.

Call Congress Member Donovan’s DC office TODAY at (202) 225-3371 and urge him to vote NO on the House Farm Bill. Here’s what you can say:

“Hello, this is [your name] and I’m calling from [your organization], which is located in the Congress Member’s District. Our zip code is [organization’s zip code]. Please ask the Congress Member to stand up for low income constituents and VOTE NO to the House Farm Bill. Changes to SNAP in the House Farm Bill will take food away from low income households with constituents who can’t work including children, seniors and people trying to recover from opioid use and domestic abuse. The Congress Member’s NO vote is extremely important to me and people in his community. [Share why else SNAP is important to you and your constituents]. Thank you for your time, and for sharing my message with the Congress Member.”

Congress is expected to vote on the Farm Bill the week of May 21. Rep. Donovan’s NO vote is critical to stopping cuts to SNAP that would take millions of meals away from our neighbors in need. Thank you for taking action!
