Study Says Food Assistance Programs Provide Short-Term Relief

While some believe that food assistance programs result in dependency, a recent report suggests that is not true.

Academy staff continues to educate Congress about the short-term relief these programs provide. To get involved and speak with your representative contact your Public Policy Coordinator today.
