Ensuring all Americans have equitable access to affordable, nutritious food is foundational to our nation’s health, education, national security, and economic priorities. Typically reauthorized every five years, the farm bill governs an array of food and agricultural programs. In 2023, the nutrition title is expected to comprise 84% of total farm bill spending, mostly for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the nation’s largest federal nutrition program that serves 41 million Americans.
Join the Bipartisan Policy Center’s Food and Nutrition Security Task Force as we discuss new recommendations aimed at strengthening food and nutrition security through SNAP and other federal nutrition assistance programs.
The event will begin with a nutrition reporter and congressional staff looking ahead at the processes and priorities around the 2023 Farm Bill.
