America is facing intertwined crises of poor nutrition, rising obesity rates, and rising Medicare and Medicaid costs that threaten both the physical and fiscal health of the nation. As the largest federal food and nutrition program, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps over 40 million individuals annually afford food for themselves and their families. Despite its successes in reducing food insecurity among low-income individuals, the program could be strengthened to improve nutrition.

In advance of SNAP’s reauthorization in the 2018 Farm Bill, BPC convened the bipartisan SNAP Task Force—led by former Senate majority leader Dr. Bill Frist and former agriculture secretaries Dan Glickman and Ann M. Veneman—to examine ways to promote better health through good nutrition using SNAP and related federal programs. Join us as we release the recommendations of this task force and discuss ways to improve nutrition in America.
