SNAP is the second largest anti-poverty program for children in the U.S. The research consistently shows that SNAP leads to reductions in food insecurity, satisfying a core goal of the program. Recent research shows that the benefits of SNAP are much broader and further reaching than the reduction in food insecurity. Professor Hoynes summarizes the evidence from current research that quantifies the effects of childhood access to food stamps on long run health and economic outcomes. She concludes with thoughts about the California context and possible opportunities for the CalFresh program.
