UNH's Applauds Governor Cuomo for Reinstating Funds to SNAP Benefits

Friday, February 28, 2014

United Neighborhood Houses is proud to work in a state in which the Governor has chosen to reinstate the deplorable Federal cuts to vital nutrition supports for low-income individuals and families. Governor Cuomo’s solution to provide the $457 million in SNAP benefits that were stripped from the Federal farm bill shows his commitment to the most vulnerable members of our communities. UNH member agencies see first-hand that hunger stands in the way of children learning, seniors remaining healthy, and of workers being productive; we are relieved to know that Governor Cuomo sees these realities too.
