Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum is seeking community insight from a very diverse group of religious leaders. 

The state’s religious leaders worry Congress is trying to shift the financial burden of a federal food stamp program onto the religious community. Congressional leaders are looking to make cuts to the program that will affect millions of Americans. But, the faith community says not only are they opposed to the cuts, they say they have their own financial situations to deal with and won’t be able to pick up the tab.
