As of March 1, 2023, all states have ended the expanded SNAP benefits available during the first few years of the pandemic. Presenters in this webinar will examine the role of food assistance in the U.S. social safety net, how SNAP was adjusted to respond to public health and economic crises brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, assessments of those interventions, and how policymakers and practitioners can use lessons learned to improve on the program’s efficacy and impact moving forward.
