Current Advocacy Campaigns

Montana Food Bank Network advocates at both state and federal levels to protect and strengthen the public nutrition programs, and address root causes of hunger.

State Level

The 2021 State Legislative Session underway! Throughout the session, we will work to protect SNAP and support access to programs that reduce hunger.

Click the buttons below to learn more about, and take action on, bills we are tracking.

Oppose SB100, Fraud Prevention Bill. SB100 has been transmitted to the House.
Support HB235, State Investment in Double SNAP Dollars. HB235 pass out of the House Human Services Committee with a 14-5 vote. Next step is House Floor vote.

Federal Level

The House is currently working on a relief package, called the American Rescue Plan, that would provide the much needed help Americans need with expanded unemployment benefits, continuation of key food assistance provisions, new investments in WIC, and much more.

More information on the American Rescue Plan can be found in the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities article, House Relief Package Would Help Millions and Bolster the Economy.

Together, our voices truly do make a difference.
