The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a crucial element of the health and welfare safety net in the United States. The purpose of SNAP is to provide low-income eligible households enough money to reach the cost of a nutritious diet.
The current SNAP is undergoing changes that include a 20.3% increase in total monthly SNAP benefits and President Biden's interest in reassessing the Thrifty Food Plan's (TFP) method of determining SNAP benefits. Thus, C-FARE felt it is time to follow up on a topic we discussed in August 2020.
Therefore, C-FARE decided to host a follow-up event to our August webinar and invite a panel of scholars to present on SNAP and TFP on Feb. 26 at 11 am EST.
Our panel of speakers consists of three experts who have studied SNAP and other food policy effects and will be moderated by Sean Cash, C-FARE's Board member, and the Bergstrom Foundation Professor at the Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University.
