House Hearing on Future of Nutrition Programs and Specialty Crops

The House Agriculture Committee's Subcommittee on Nutrition and Horticulture held a hearing to discuss specialty crops and nutrition programs to prepare for writing the 2012 Farm Bill.

The panel discussed the importance of specialty crops in promoting the health of all Americans. The panelists were strongly in support of a number of federal nutrition programs, such as SNAP and the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program, as these programs encourage healthy eating especially among children that lead to healthy habits in the future. The second panel focused on nutrition programs funded through the Farm Bill, with most of the focus on SNAP.

Much of the discussion surrounded the proposed House budget cuts of $33 billion to the SNAP program. Panelists felt that if the cuts went into effect, several thousand participants would be cut from the program, food banks would have a limited supply that could not meet the demand and grocery stores would have less demand for products.
