Luckily, national groups like the Food Research & Action Center and Feeding America were on hand to prevent those cuts - but other compromises were made. The Senate bill now differs markedly from that passed by the House, and most of the changes don't favor hungry families:
In general, the House bill is better for those hit hardest by the recession, and provides more resources to the best stimulus available - food stamps, for which every dollar spent yields $1.73 in stimulus.
If your Congressmember voted for the stimulus package, call them today and tell them to "stand firm" for hungry Texas families!
