A Congressman Speaks Out Against Our Government’s Cruelty Toward’s Kids

“If things change we have an opportunity to do some good things. Look at the House farm bill. It is a cruel document, it cuts SNAP by billions of dollars it will throw hundreds of thousands of kids off of free lunch and breakfast at school.  How can you endorse that kind of bill? It is cruelty. At a minimum that kind of cruelty stops.”

-Rep. Jim McGovern

On our new and timely episode of Add Passion and Stir, Congressman Jim McGovern offers an impassioned defense of the food and nutrition programs at the heart of our No Kid Hungry strategy, and speculates about what might change should Democrats re-take the House and should be become chairman of the powerful House Rules Committee.  He is joined by Equinox chef Todd Gray who has been part of Share Our Strength since our earliest days.   This episode is a great one to share with our anti-hunger partners across the country.  Listen in at our website or on iTunes.
