Sign the Petition to Protect Food Aid for Children

Over half of all households receiving food stamps have children, yet Congress may now take away many of these meals from our neediest.

The congressional “super committee” in the coming months will cut trillions from government spending, and some members prefer to slash vital support to the nation’s children in order to protect tax cuts for the wealthy.

Sign this petition and tell Congress: As millions remain jobless, protect food aid for children!

As the economy continues to struggle and millions of Americans are still out of work, we need to make sure the next generation of American scientists, nurses, and teachers has the food they need at home to succeed.

Please let the committee members know that children should not go hungry while the wealthy enjoy tax breaks. Take action to protect food stamps and other programs like it.
