We're fighting to save food assistance for seniors – and we need your help
It's simple: The House plan to cut SNAP benefits is wrong and unacceptable. Millions of seniors rely on food assistance to get by, and cutting it could force millions of older Americans to choose between paying their bills and paying for their next meal.

That's why AARP was on Capitol Hill yesterday, fighting back against these cuts to vulnerable seniors. But one day of action isn't enough – we need your help to keep up our efforts to fight for the SNAP benefits that seniors rely upon.

Send your letter now, and tell Congress that cutting SNAP benefits is unacceptable.
