You can make a public comment on SNAP through April 2.

In spite of SNAP being preserved in the budget by congress, the Administration has proposed a rule that would take away SNAP eligibility for 755,000 unemployed and underemployed adults. That means cutting SNAP food benefits by $15 billion over 10 years. This would make hunger and poverty in this country far worse.  The link enables you to make a public comment through April 2.  A public comment cannot be a cut and paste message.  It must contain about 1/3 of your own words. You can click on proposed a rule to read the rule, then continue below.  The rest of document contains additional information on food assistance.
