Feeding Wisconsin joins call to reinstate ABAWD waiver in areas of high unemployment
March 23, 2016 - On Tuesday, four members of Wisconsin’s Congressional delegation delivered a letter to Governor Walker urging him to reinstate the federal waiver to allow Able-Bodied Adults without Dependents (ABAWDs) to access the FoodShare Program without restriction in the 20 counties and 10 cities in Wisconsin with continued high unemployment. Feeding Wisconsin, the statewide association of the six Feeding America food banks operating in Wisconsin, joins with the many local groups and anti-hunger organizations in supporting this effort.
SB 474 Passes Senate Ag Committee
January 14, 2016 - Exciting news as we start the new year that we wanted to make sure you heard about right away. "Harvest for Hope" (SB 474 and AB 611) has cleared its first hurdle and is one step closer to becoming law. Yesterday, the Wisconsin Senate Committee on Agriculture, Small Business, and Tourism passed SB 474 out of committee. This legislation will increase the amount of free, healthy, and nutritious food for food pantries to distribute through a public-private partnership between the state and Wisconsin's network of regional food banks. Thank you to the Senate Agriculture committee for supporting and sharing the goal of Harvest for Hope, one that is shared by every organization dedicated to ending hunger: ensuring that more healthful food is available to Wisconsin families who are utilizing food pantries.
September is Hunger Action Month
September 1, 2015 - All throughout September, Feeding Wisconsin, its member food banks, and food banks across the nation in the Feeding America network will be observing Hunger Action Month to raise awareness about the issue of hunger. Supporters can get involved throughout the month at food bank events, wear orange on Hunger Action Day on 9/3, or they can take a "Spoon Selfie" to post to their social media.
Earlier this week, the House budget committee released their plan for Fiscal Year 2018 spending and after a day of committee mark-up, passed the FY 18 budget resolution along party lines. The budget resolution included reconciliation instructions that would force $203 billion in cuts in mandatory programs, including instructions to the House Agriculture Committee to find at least $10 billion in cuts, likely to come from SNAP. There were also $150 billion in other suggested changes to SNAP that would break our nation's promise to provide nutrition assistance to families trying to live healthier lives.
