Second Harvest Foodbank President Dan Stein and Madison Mayor Paul Soglin talked Wednesday about the local impact of the Farm Bill that is set to be signed by President Barack Obama on Friday.
The measure reduces food stamp money for Wisconsin families already receiving government help paying their energy bills.
An average family on food stamps would lose an estimated $90 a month.
“We understand the importance of our country balancing its books. We understand the importance of being fiscally responsible, but we take exception that it’s being done on the backs of people who struggle with hunger,” Stein said.
There are 15 states nationwide that offer low-income families both food stamps and energy assistance.
