U.S. House Votes to Slash Food Stamps Further

Bookmark and Share

U.S. House of Representatives voted today to make further slashes of close to $9 billion in food stamp funding for hungry New Yorkers.

These cuts would be in addition to $5 billion in cuts that went into effect on November 1st.

This means more cuts for the 1.8 million New Yorkers who rely on the program to feed their families.

Parents and children are already hungry since the last cuts just 3 months ago of between $30 – $50 per family.

 

Join us in helping those in need.  Support our Feeding Our Neighbors campaign.

This united effort to fight hunger responds to Timothy Cardinal Dolan’s call that we all do our part to replenish the food pantries and soup kitchens that so many families in our community rely on to survive.

Feeding Our Neighbors, an archdiocesan-wide campaign to combat hunger, ends this Sunday, February 2, 2014.

Supported by parishes, schools and other organizations throughout the Archdiocese of New York and managed by Catholic Charities, Feeding Our Neighbors will use 100% of contributions to the campaign to support local food pantries that serve New Yorkers, non-Catholic and Catholic alike.

There is no time to wait.

New Yorkers are hungry.
