There are only a few days left to comment on the Trump administration’s proposal to implement, through executive action, cuts to SNAP benefits which it failed to get through legislation. With this end run around Congress, the proposal would eliminate SNAP benefits for 3.1 million individuals, take free school meals away from the children in those families, and punish people with even meager savings. The comment period ends on Monday, Sept. 23. Advocates want to generate lots of comments making clear that these cuts would harm struggling people.
