More Information about SNAP

I've been watching an incredible series of lectures out of UC Berkley.  (You should too!  It's free and has an all-star cast!)  It's a class on food issues that's happening in the current semester so the information is totally up to date.  All of the classes are being broadcast each Monday evening and archived for later viewing.  Fantastic!

In the most recent lecture one of my food issues heroes, Marion Nestle, talked extensively about the history and the funding of the SNAP program.  She explained how the program is funded via the Farm Bill - quite surprising information actually.  This dovetails so nicely with yesterday's blog post and the post going up on Sunday that I just had to share it!

The SNAP discussion starts around 1:29:00.  Enjoy!
