Is Trump Right to Let Gas Stations Offer SNAP and to Classify Cheese Spray as a Staple?
Critics of the USDA's new stocking standards say their opposition is about incentivizing retailers, not about penalizing people for what's in their grocery cart.
Hi, I'm Emily Moon, Pacific Standard's staff writer covering public assistance and food insecurity. I write about how people produce, access, and consume food. In the past, we've addressed questions like these: Why is participation in the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) falling? Will a new Trump administration proposal harm food assistance recipients? How many college students are going hungry?
Now we want to hear from you. We're launching this project to learn what questions you have and how food insecurity, food deserts, and malnutrition affect you or the people in your life. Send me any questions you have about food insecurity, and I'll do the research. Later, we'll ask our audience to help decide which stories we should pursue. Your feedback will help fuel our future reporting, so we can connect people with the knowledge they need to access nutritious food.
