President Trump’s proposed budget would cut $190 billion dollars from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
“Some of the people in the program now would no longer be eligible and no longer have access. There won’t be enough money,” said Adele LaTourette, director, New Jersey Anti-Hunger Coalition. “Basically we’re talking about gutting the SNAP program. Which is the frontline of defense against hunger. I don’t know what the thinking is behind this except there isn’t much thinking.”
