Protect Food Aid for Children!

Protect Food Aid for Children!

 

 As we all prepare to enjoy Thanksgiving, this infographic reminds us of the unemployed, struggling to find jobs and struggling to provide food for their children as the look for work.With Thanksgiving approaching, it’s important to think of all the families in America who struggle to put food on the table.

As most Americans sit down for Thanksgiving meals, an increasing number will be relying on food stamps. The need for government assistance rises during a recession, and the economic crisis has taken a toll on working families.

Unemployment has particularly driven demand for food assistance, and it’s clear that with fewer jobs comes greater dependence on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) program and EBT cards, as we have charted in this above infographic.
