No more #EmptyPlatesEmptyPromises

by Community Change Action | April 30, 2018 9:52 am

More than 60 mom, dads, seniors and people with disabilities delivered empty plates to the Washington, D.C. office of Texas House Rep. Mike Conaway, author of the Farm Bill, to show how his proposal to cut SNAP will leave families hungry. Don’t let the House GOP take food from families. Send Conaway your empty plates with messages or take photos with your empty plate and message and tag us at @cccaction and hashtag #EmptyPlatesEmptyPromises.

The rest of us live one illness, one recession, or one piece of bad luck from economic ruin.
