Rebecca Vallas Writes on Trump’s Announced Cuts to Food Stamps

Former Fellow Rebecca Vallas (‘09) wrote an article for Rewire.News about the Trump administration's proposal to slash funds from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program — commonly referred to as food stamps — that would strip more than 3 million people of food assistance (“Trump’s Newest Plan for SNAP Would Trap Workers in Poverty,” July 29). She describes how the cut is a “blueprint for trapping workers and families and poverty” as well as a “backdoor attack on the school lunch program,” as kids in SNAP-eligible households automatically receive free school meals.
