First Focus Campaign for Children sent a letter on May 14, 2013 to Chairwoman Debbie Stabenow and Ranking Member Thad Cochran in regards to the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee markup of the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2013 which proposes to cut nutrition programs by $4.1 billion through cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Despite these cuts the Agriculture Reform, Food and Jobs Act of 2013 protects the SNAP-Education program, as well as the funding and structure for the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program.
