@HillTownTrader1 @RepDavidTrone Yeah, I wish people didn't have to rely on the gov't for food. If Republicans would let us ⬆️ the minimum wage, maybe fewer people would need SNAP, which is a good thing.
Instead, they refuse to raise the wage & then they cut SNAP funding. No wonder why we have a hunger crisis.
Republicans feel the new rule will help reduce wasteful spending and welfare fraud. It is clamed the 500,000 kids that will be impacted in the free lunch program will still qualify, they will just need to apply separately from the SNAP project. source
Oppose the revision because it is estimated to take 500,000 kids off free lunch programs in the 2020/2021 school year. source
