Please join the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) and Congressman Jim McGovern on Wednesday, June 25th from 10:00 am - 11:00 am in Cannon 210 for a briefing on improving access to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) for Latinos.  While studies have shown that food assistance programs, such as SNAP, have proven to be effective at encouraging and enabling healthy eating among low income families, these programs have struggled to adequately serve low-income Latino families.  Currently, the participation gap for Latinos stands at slightly over 10 percentage points and many Latinos leave the program prematurely.  In an effort to explore disparities in SNAP enrollment, with the support of the ConAgra Foods Foundation, NCLR conducted focus groups with Latino SNAP participants to gain in-depth insight into their experiences with the program.  The briefing will explore the results of these focus groups.  Please feel free to forward and RSVP to vbenner@nclr.org
