In response to the Journey’s Summer
I’m proud of Kimball for his hard work at Anytime Fitness! Journeys Developmental Disability Agency is doing their part to keep America the land of opportunity. Employment programs are a vital element to equal opportunities, as are anti-hunger programs.
SNAP, commonly known as food stamps, is America’s most effective anti-hunger program. 185,303 Idahoans receive monthly SNAP benefits. Recently, the House of Representatives passed a farm bill that would take SNAP away from people struggling to find work, such as the Journey’s Agency Program participants — even though SNAP helps people find employment.
Luckily, the Senate’s farm bill is bipartisan and defends SNAP. We need to make sure it stays that way. I call on Representative Simpson and Senator Risch to support a final farm bill that’s bipartisan and ensures that Idahoans will not go hungry.
