United Way Worldwide Applauds Congress’ Bipartisan Fight Against HungerUnited Way Worldwide applauds Congress for passing a bipartisan compromise on the Farm Bill, which protects and strengths the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP. SNAP provides access to food for those who cannot afford it. It's an important temporary lifeline for millions of Americans – mostly children, seniors and veterans – many of whom are in school or work but can’t make ends meet. It ensures people don’t have to choose between paying the electric bill and putting food on the table. SNAP reflects United Way’s mission of improving the health and financial stability of our communities and will enable millions to access essential food support. United Way Worldwide Senior Vice President and Counsel for Public Policy, Steve Taylor said, “We’re all better off when our neighbors have food on the table and a roof over their heads. SNAP reflects United Way’s mission of improving the health and financial stability of our communities and ensuring that our most vulnerable neighbors have access to nutritious meals.” Taylor continued, “We appreciate the bipartisan, bicameral leadership of Senator Pat Roberts, Senator Debbie Stabenow, Rep. Mike Conaway and Rep. Edward Peterson in shepherding this bill through to passage. Their willingness to push through political obstacles to make this bill happen in the last days of this Congress is a testament to their commitment to putting people first and we thank these four leaders for their efforts.” ...
