Reminding everyone to CALL Senators Warren and Markey today, thank them for their steadfast support of SNAP, and encourage them to push the Senate to act quickly to pass a relief package that boosts SNAP. Hearing from constituents matters so they can use our voices to reinforce their work to #BoostSNAPnow!
Please also POST on social media - see info from FRAC and partners below. For example, check out this powerful Facebook post from the Open Door in Gloucester with Gloucester Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken.
To reinforce the message:
- See this powerful NY Times article from Sunday: Amid a Deadly Virus and Crippled Economy, One Form of Aid Has Proved Reliable: Food Stamps
- MA had the highest unemployment rate in the country in June at 17.4% - and now more than a half million households in MA receive SNAP (about 520,000).
