An update today (10/28) from the Food Research and Action Center
Comment Period Reopened:
Proposed Changes to SNAP Could Leave
Nearly 1 Million Children Without Access to
Free School Meals
USDA has reopened the public comment period for Categorical Eligibility in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. A surprise release of data that the USDA should have disclosed earlier underscores the deep harm of its proposed rule to limit access to SNAP: eliminating food assistance for 3.1 million people and jeopardizing free school meals for nearly 1 million children. See FRAC's statement.
Deadline to comment: November 1.
