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.
