The American Heart Association is advocating for critical nutrition and feeding programs in the Farm Bill, and we are going to need your voice!
The farm bill is a comprehensive multi-year federal bill that addresses nutrition and agricultural policy issues. It is typically renewed every five years; the current authorization expires September 30, 2023. The nutrition title within the bill includes the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Gus Schumacher Nutrition Incentives Program (GusNIP, or incentives), and other vital programs.
Do you have experience with SNAP and GusNIP? Our most important and critical asks need your voice.
When you visit this link you have two options: you can type and send your story directly or you can indicate you’ve had experience with SNAP and that you’d like someone from the American Heart Association to follow-up with you. Together, we can work to strengthen these programs so that families can access the nutritious food they need to thrive.
