    Position Statements

    • June 2012: Our position on the Senate Farm Bill and its potential impacts on SNAP benefits is detailed in this Take Action. Update: On Tuesday June 19, 2012 the US Senate voted against Senator Gilliland’s Amendment almost 2:1. While this is an honest portrayal of our country’s current priorities—giving subsidies to profitable insurance companies versus hungry people living poverty—this is still a huge disappointment. It also points directly to the reason we do the work we do, along with so many good people and good groups in solidarity.

    • April 2012: Our statement detailing our commitment to food justice
