The interfaith community is united in support of protecting the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) in ongoing Farm Bill negotiations. The faith leaders hope that Senator Stabenow will stay strong and hold together bipartisan negotiations so that the Senate doesn’t choose to act on a partisan proposal, such as the proposal by the House of Representatives.
