H.R. 2, The House Farm Bill will make it harder for more than 44,000 households in your district to put food on the table by taking away — or cutting — SNAP benefits from many struggling Mainers: Veterans, Seniors, children in working families, and people with disabilities. 

None of your constituents deserve to go hungry. 


Not only will H.R. 2 have a devastating impact on the 14% of Mainers who benefit from SNAP, it will take money away from the 899 retailers in your district <http://click.actionnetwork.org/mpss/c/_gA/ni0YAA/t.2h5/W5WqdPncS-yjhiuwhFhlyw/h0/xmKuF-2BL2g03Iq3ANaGIKjes1E-2FLnzKQ-2ByrayQIxrbXN4cJ-2FD-2FKMwyHLgeMTo-2B7SS6aDmCNnXr2-2F5eaEFl9HoPiKyrbgNQJGPv6VBrsltd2SmBeJxxhwuXujpVswlIApsPSYQRIQZmH5il8p4mtJpgQL-2BXDV3mj3k2QEvwfYzze-2B52iGleZBNcJjRFBqxzBe2ns5q-2Bkyz5SXD4hEh6-2BL2bnfzH5Y6GaPOdXHdNjgZFjCUiFx9h8gHmEKOfHaA3kYbWfGNmrUuU2iKlYQIdnYfRc-2BzCzrUtwdVBUA5Y7slCsCHYtYFpElxKcHzR7GFKdELQKtvrk1NwBQUKyBkw3gOHw-3D-3D> that rely on income from SNAP from local A&B Naturals in Bar Harbor, Mike’s Country Store in Ellsworth, to the 55 Circle K’s, and 27 Hannaford Supermarket locations.

13% of all grocery sales in Androscoggin County are paid by federal SNAP dollars.

Support Maine’s economy by opposing all SNAP cuts in the House Farm Bill. Ensure that the federal government does not wage a war against the poor, but a war against poverty. We need our programs to eradicate hunger, create jobs and invest in our communities. Funding SNAP does all of these and it’s imperative that you reverse your position and protect the welfare of your constituents.
