Hunger Task Force Included in Food Access Research Publication
Timing is everything. During the pandemic, Hunger Task Force worked with a research team led by Melissa G. Bublitz, Katherine Du, Elizabeth Miller and Laura Peracchio to study how federal nutrition programs played a vital role in averting crisis levels of hunger. The paper – Ending Hunger: How COVID-19 Revealed a Path to Food Access for All – was recently published in the Journal of Consumer Research. One of the lingering questions in the paper’s conclusion asks: what happens when these benefits return to pre-pandemic levels? We’re witnessing that now. SNAP Emergency Allotments have ended for families across the country and the results will sadly show how the path to food access is abruptly closed.
