Tell Congress to repeal vote

Please urge U.S. Senators and Representatives to reverse the House vote to reduce SNAP (formerly food stamps) by 4 million dollars which will affect 850,000 recipients of food. In a book titled “Hunger USA”, we were warned that malnutrition can diminish the brains of children for life. Those of us who have experienced hunger and dehydration know those conditions leave a person with a worn out warped feeling — too overwhelming to perform well at work.

Anyone who has gotten food from a food bank knows that too regularly the fruits and meats aren’t as fresh as merchandise on store shelves. Let’s help keep the poor from being likened to the story of Joseph being left in a ditch. We can lift up our brothers and sisters with their garments.
