The U.S. House of Representatives could vote as early as this week on a bill to cut off or reduce basic food assistance under the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) for roughly 2 million people across the nation. This includes many people with disabilities and their families.
SNAP is vitally important for people with disabilities and their families. We know that all too often food insecurity and disability go together. Families that include people with disabilities are two to three times more likely to experience food insecurity than families that have no members with disabilities.
