Dec 1, 2000
This annual report from Food Research and Action Center (FRAC) and America's Second Harvest presents information on actions the 50 states and the District of Columbia are taking -- or failing to take -- to address the food assistance gap. Actions include initiatives to foster access to Food Stamp Program benefits for working families with children, jobless persons willing to work, and legal immigrants; to expand the reach of the Summer Food and School Breakfast Programs; to bolster nutrition assistance to children in pre-school and afterschool settings; to strengthen the WIC Program's service to pregnant women, infants, and young children; and to supplement support (food and funds) to emergency feeding organizations.
