The House Agriculture Committee will mark up and vote on their version of the Farm Bill on Wednesday, July 11th. The bill currently cuts $16.1 billion from SNAP, which is three times the cut in the Senate version of the bill. These proposed cuts would cause:
• two to three million individuals to lose their food assistance entirely;
• 500,000 households to see their benefits cut by $90 per month; and
• nearly 300,000 children to lose free school meals.
