Important Congressional Issues Require Your Action!

As a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, please urge your representative to support legislation that protects and values nutrition programs in the farm bill. The U.S. House of Representatives recently released farm bill text that would make harmful cuts and changes to our nation’s largest and most effective food assistance program, the Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program. The bill would also create an uncertain future for the two nutrition education programs, the SNAP Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention Grant Program, and the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program. The House Agriculture Committee is set to consider the bill on April 18 quickly followed by a full House vote.

Please send the new action alert message to your representative. Let them know how the changes in the farm bill would impact you, the people you serve and your community. The voice of every member is critical as these vital decisions are made regarding nutrition. We encourage you to take action today!
