12) SNAP lifted 810,000 Californians out of poverty in 2017

5) SNAP keeps people healthy and ensures health care costs stay low

4) People on food stamps are not trying to take advantage of the system. They are trying to survive

3) Hungry kids don’t do well in school

2) The Farm Bill has a tradition of being a bipartisan piece of legislation that shows how people can work together to address hunger
