Take the quiz about SNAP and see how much you know about this program...
The House of Representatives recently approved a Farm Bill that took out funding for SNAP benefits (formerly known as food stamps), leaving the future funding for SNAP and other anti-hunger programs up in the air.
For decades, the Farm Bill has been a bipartisan bill that provided a safety-net for our nation's farmers and low-income Americans. Now, the future of the Farm Bill is uncertain and we don’t know what will happen next.
What I do know is that there are misconceptions about SNAP, and it's our job as advocates to clear them up.
So, we decided it was time to get the facts straight on SNAP. Take the SNAP quiz now and see how much you know, then share it with your elected officials, your friends, and your family.
The answers in the quiz might surprise you.
I suspect that many others might be surprised as well. Too many times, we only see vital programs, like SNAP, in terms of dollars and forget the role they play in strengthening our communities by reducing hunger in America.
It's our job as anti-hunger advocates to set the record straight by challenging the misconceptions that impede our ability to achieve a hunger-free America.
Take our quiz now to learn and then share the real facts about SNAP.
