Event Details

 
Part of our Urban Food Policy Forum series.

What will be the impact of the election outcome on SNAP and Child Nutrition? The Republican Party, soon to control both houses of Congress, has long called for block-granting of SNAP, and has recently proposed several troubling changes in School Food programs. How can New Yorkers prepare to defend these crucial components of our social safety net?    

Confirmed panelists:

Maggie Dickinson, Assistant Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies, Guttman Community College
Triada Stampas, Vice President for Research and Public Affairs, Food Bank for New York City
Ellen Vollinger, Legal/Food Stamp Director, Food Research and Action Center (FRAC)
Amy Richards, Health Organizer, Make the Road New York

Moderated by Jan Poppendieck, Senior Faculty Fellow, CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute and Professor Emerita, Sociology, Hunter College. 

Additional Panelists TBA.
