End Hunger Connecticut! advocates at the federal, state, and local levels for policies that reduce hunger by increasing access to nutrition assistance programs. The organization’s Board of Directors annually adopts public policy priorities. End Hunger Connecticut! has developed federal, state, and local public policy recommendations to significantly reduce the incidence of hunger in Connecticut. These recommendations are based on extensive consultation with federal and state administering agencies, partner organizations, and local providers.
We have chosen two great resources from The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities that can help you advocate for SNAP benefits when CT and Federal policies need your voice. Please feel free to use the State by State Fact Sheets with information on who benefits from SNAP and its role in the economy, as well as the SNAP Chart Book which describes in detail and with infographics the major characteristics, trends and data available on SNAP program administration and use.
