Currently, Congress is considering the future of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) as they look to reconcile the House and Senate versions of the Farm Bill.
The decisions they make during this process will directly impact how the 1 in 7 people in Northwest North Carolina, including seniors, veterans, and children who experience hunger, will be able to put food on the table.
No piece of legislation is more important to Second Harvest Food Bank and North Carolina families trying to make ends meet. The Farm Bill must keep critical programs like SNAP and TEFAP strong and strengthen America’s national commitment to fighting hunger.
