This month, we review the history, politics, and public health implications of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, abbreviated as SNAP and formerly known as the food stamp program. With Joanna Simmons, who used food stamps herself, we see how the system works and whether it is useful. Then with Prof. Marion Nestle, we will review the history of SNAP, what he program has achieved, and whether it can be improved.
