[CALL/EMAIL SCRIPT] Hello, my name is [NAME] and I am a constituent from [COUNTY NAME] calling to express my support for Feeding New York State’s priorities, including universal school meals (A.1941 / S.1678), raising SNAP minimum benefits to $100 a month (A.6214 / S. 7663), and adequately funding anti-hunger programs. We believe [SENATOR/ASSEMBLYMEMBER NAME] should support passing legislation that includes these priorities. Thank you for taking my call and I hope to hear from the Senator soon.
