We're continuing our conversation about food insecurity in light of the recent proposed cuts to the SNAP program — often referred to as food stamps — by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Monday, we spoke to Rep. Jim McGovern about this issue. Today, we hear from two people who think about it every day.

Guests

Vicky Negus, policy advocate with the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute, which tweets @MassLawReform.

Shannon Yaremchak, board member at the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts.

This segment aired on July 30, 2019.
