SNAP Cuts Put Youth at Risk
Lower-Basch, Elizabeth
Center for Law and Social Policy, Inc. (CLASP)
In a typical month in 2011, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program) served 4.3 million low-income young adults ages 18-24, helping them buy needed groceries. This brief report demonstrates the detrimental impact the cuts proposed to SNAP in the House-passed Farm bill (H.R. 3102)--which is now being considered by a conference committee--would have on young adults.
