CALL-TO-ACTION: Federal/SNAP – PPC supports PCRM’s efforts to improve SNAP so that it prioritizes healthful foods to address both hunger and malnutrition while saving both money and lives. SNAP should empower economically disadvantaged Americans to be healthy while also improving the national food market, rather than continue to subsidize the junk food profits of massive companies. Reauthorization of the Farm Bill, which contains SNAP, is due September 2018. Discussions and groundwork for what will be in that legislation are now underway.
CALL-TO-ACTION: Pods/Local/PlantPure Communities Restaurant Campaign – The PlantPure Communities (PPC) Restaurant Campaign is aimed at efforts to grow the number of restaurants that offer at least one vegan/whole food, plant-based (WFPB) meal on their menu. The PPC Restaurant Campaign Toolkit contains a wide variety of information and is intended to support the engagement of thousands of Pod members who are participating in the Campaign.
