Take Action: Advocacy and the SNAP Proposed Rule

KAND members

Recently the Academy has called on RDNs as experts and advocates on the topic of life cycle nutrition to speak up and reach out to their elected congressional representatives on the SNAP proposed rule that would reduce access to SNAP and school meals for many families in your community. Under the proposed rule 1-5% of KY SNAP families would lose access to much needed support and access to nutritious food. We still need your help! Please join your fellow KAND members and advocate for food access in our state.  We are asking you to do two things:

  1. Tailor the Op-Ed template or use our provided presidents statement-Presidents State SNAP and submit to your local media contacts in coordination with your affiliate’s communications liaison
  2. Tailor the Email template included in this communication and send to your district/state office, cc’ing the Ag LA and LD.Mitch McConnell (R-KY)

For specific instructions, please view the recording of this afternoon’s call here.

 

Our goal is to have the op-ed and email sent as soon as possible. Please let me know when you have sent both communications and if you have any questions, please contact me at ecampbell@eatright.org.

 

Thank you for your efforts to protect 3 million people from losing their SNAP benefits and 500,000 children from losing access to free school meals.
