The Farm Bill is currently in its final negotiations, and important funding for SNAP-Ed programs in Arizona and across the country is at stake. We need your help to urge Congress to maintain the Senate version of the Farm Bill to save this critical support for these programs.
The SNAP-Ed program provides nutrition education and resources to thousands of Arizonans. If the Senate version of the funding is not maintained, agencies across the state will no longer be able to offer effective food and nutrition programs to low-income communities who need it, particularly in Congressional Districts 1 and 3.
Nationally, the new House funding formula would also significantly shift SNAP-Ed grants away from more than 15 other states, thus ending programs for people in hundreds of low-income communities throughout the country.
Fill out this form to urge Congressman Tom O’Halleran and Congressman Raúl Grijalva to maintain the Senate version of the Farm Bill to save this critical support for these programs in their districts!
Our state is stronger, healthier, and more resilient because of these important efforts. Please help us ensure these programs are maintained!
