The Fifty One

When It Comes to Food Access, SNAP Isn’t Supplemental, It’s Essential


With over 40 million Americans receiving food stamps, SNAP is one of our largest federal policy issues. And a hotly debated one at that.



In our latest episode of  The Fifty One, host Amy Westervelt talks with reporter Claire Brown from The New Food Economy about the SNAP program and its importance in combating food insecurity across America.

The Fifty One is presented by DAME and produced and distributed by Critical Frequency.
