Mayor de Blasio's Office estimates that this change would deeply impact the health of 75,000 NYC residents who currently qualify for SNAP. In particular, this would affect the Bronx as it remains the hungriest borough with more than one in four (26%) experiencing food insecurity.
Bronx Health REACH urges you to submit your comments on this proposal by December 10th. Let your voice be heard! If the proposal is passed immigrant individuals and families will not have access to healthy food options through SNAP.
Deadline for submitting comments is December 10, 2018.
