Food stamp cuts
Extending tax credit is one step forward

To the Editor:
With food banks bracing for the end of a waiver program, what can be done?  (“End of food stamp benefits waiver has food banks tense,” in the March 23 Tribunes).
The work programs are helpful, but not yet reaching every one. Another ladder out of poverty could be extending the Earned Income Tax Credit to childless working adults. This tax credit has been shown to keep millions from falling into or deeper into poverty. 
By asking our representatives to extend it to childless adults who are working, but don’t earn enough to make ends meet, we can provide a path to self-sufficiency.  In the short run this will make a difference, while long term solutions can be found to finally end hunger in America.
