Youth brigade fights food stamp cuts

Published Jul 18, 2011 9:11 PM

Congress is threatening to cut food stamps and turn this essential program into a block grant with limited funding for states to administer. Meanwhile, some 44 million people in the U.S. are on food stamps, with the number rising every day due to massive unemployment. The Summer Organizing Brigade hit the streets of the South Bronx, N.Y., to begin a campaign to defeat these cutbacks. Organized by the Solidarity Center, the group — led by youth of color and open to all ages — also got out Workers World newspapers and condemned the bombing of Libya.
