Act today: one million kids could lose access to school meals under Trump proposal

The Trump Administration has proposed taking away Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps) benefits from children, seniors, and hardworking low-income Americans. This means many children from low-income families would no longer qualify for healthy school meals. The government’s latest analysis estimates nearly one million children could lose their existing access to free and reduced-price school meals. This is in addition to the three million people who would already lose access to SNAP food assistance.
