Texas food banks may be less equipped to help hungry households in the new year

“'We knew before COVID that more needed to be done to connect people with SNAP and that Texas was one of those places where this was the case,' said Ellen Vollinger, legal director of Food Research & Action Center. 'If more people are connected to SNAP, it’s not only good for them in terms of health and well-being, but it would be good for the economy.'” https://bit.ly/3lYT1Fz

More than 2.5 million households in Texas didn't always have enough food to eat in November, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. About two-thirds of those households were either Hispanic or Black.

Media Contact: Emily Pickren [email protected] 202-640-1118 Senate Passes the Families First Coronavirus Response Act; Food Research & Action Center Calls for a More Comprehensive Stimulus Package Statement attributed to Luis Guardia, president, Food Research & Action Center (FRAC) WASHINGTON, March 18, 2020 — The Food Research & Action Center (FRAC) commends the Senate today for passing the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, H.R. 6201. The bill is an important step toward ensuring people are able to put food on the table and stay safe during the COVID-19 emergency. A version of the bill passed the House last week (see FRAC’s statement for details) that, in addition to promoting food security for low-income and vulnerable people, provides paid leave to some workers, provides additional funding for unemployment insurance, and establishes free testing for COVID-19. For the 37 million people living in households struggling against hunger, and the untold more living on the edge of poverty that are hardest hit by this crisis, COVID-19 presents unique challenges. In this time of grave uncertainty, Congress has done the right thing by passing the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. This multibillion dollar coronavirus response is a vital down payment for addressing this public health and economic crisis. Now, FRAC and its partners call on Congress and the administration to immediately passing a comprehensive stimulus package that will both stabilize the economy and provide direct aid to individuals and families. ### For 50 years, the Food Research & Action Center has been the leading national nonprofit organization working to eradicate poverty-related hunger and undernutrition in the United States.

Great Webinar today!! Thank you for the information about the Proposed Public Charge Rule and it's detrimental impact on immigrant families in America. I am planning to engage my school district to take action.
