Dear [Decision Maker],
As your constituent, I want you to know that ending hunger in our nation is important to me, and that those who try to survive on the food budget for current Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as food stamps) still struggle to put food on the table.
Too many in my community and millions more throughout the country have fallen into the Meal Gap - the food budget shortfall of families struggling to put food on the table - a gap made wider by reductions in SNAP. We need your support, and the support of your colleagues in Congress, for strong hunger-relief programs.
Therefore, while some in Congress threaten SNAP, I urge you to protect and strengthen the program knowing it is our country's first line of defense against hunger. In addition, I ask you to continue to make all nutrition programs a budgetary priority. Thank you for your time, and for representing my voice in Washington, DC.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
