Docs for Tots Joins HUNGERCLIFF.ORG to Fight Cuts to Food Stamps

 

hungercliffDocs for Tots is joining the charge against drastic cuts to SNAP, our country’s first line of defense against hunger through the launch of a national online information and action resource, HungerCliff.org. This site is designed to inform Americans about the issue and mobilize them to fight back.

Food security is critical for families with young children – however our country is about to be sent off a hunger cliff. Right now, Congress is poised to slash a staggering $40 billion from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or SNAP (formerly known as food stamps), our country’s first line of defense against hunger.

Please visit hungercliff.org to not only learn what’s at risk, but to also find out how you can take action now. The site spells out exactly what is at stake if the cuts to food stamps go through – delineating myth from fact, breaking down who stands to lose the most, and providing real-time information on key Congressional decisions. Make your voice heard by joining our Thunderclap, a social media platform that enables people to sign up to post on Facebook or Twitter all at the same time for maximum impact.
