Ring & Rally Senate to boost SNAP

Hungry people can’t wait.

On Monday, July 20, join Hunger Free New Jersey, Food Research & Action Center and other advocates in a day of action to urge the Senate to quickly pass a COVID-19 relief package that boosts SNAP benefits to help feed the growing number of struggling households.

What you can do

Participate in Ring and Rally by calling New Jersey’s Senators on July 20, between 9 a.m. – noon. While we know that our Senators Cory Booker and Robert Menendez largely support such measures, having advocates in every corner of the country calling during this time amplifies the message and can spur the Senate to act. Let’s make some noise!

Senator Booker: (202) 224-3224

Sen. Menendez: (202) 224-4744.

Take to social media with this message:

Hunger can’t wait. #BoostSNAPNow in the next #COVID-19 relief package. Too many New Jerseyans are struggling to put food on the table & food banks can’t keep up! @CoryBooker @SenatorMenendez
