Washington, D.C. – Starting today, Bread for the World will regularly release infographics illustrating the human impact of President Trump’s proposed #skinnybudget for fiscal year 2018.
Although full budget details are still to come, there is enough top-line information to assess the impact of the #skinnybudget on mothers, children, the elderly, and other vulnerable people.
The first two infographics focus on taxpayers’ costs for President Trump’s weekend trips to his exclusive Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, since becoming president, and how that money could be used to help seniors receive meals and school children receive after-school snacks.
It costs taxpayers approximately $3.5 million every time Trump spends a weekend in Mar-a-Lago, according to news reports. Since he became president, this has reached $16.5 million which is enough to provide 114,583 poor children with after-school snacks for one year. It is also equivalent to feeding up to 6,000 seniors for a year in the Meals on Wheels program.

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is designed to respond to changes in need, making it well suited to respond to crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bread for the World and its partners are asking Congress to provide $200 million for global nutrition in the fiscal year 2020 budget.
In 2017, 11.8 percent of households in the U.S.—40 million people—were food-insecure, meaning that they were unsure at some point during the year about how they would provide for their next meal.
