Our analysis of President Trump's FY 18 budget is hot off the presses. We detail how it abandons a decades-long national, bi-partisan commitment to address hunger by proposing $193 billion in cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, known as CalFresh in California) over ten years.

Read more from our in-depth analysis of the budget.
