Shaefer shares food insecurity insights on the Food First podcast

January 5, 2021 Food First podcast

Shaefer: "A number of years ago work requirements were reimposed on food stamps for adults without dependents....We looked at the research nationally and locally....when you add work requirements, there is very little evidence there it has any impact on rates of work, that people are more likely to find a job. There is a ton of evidence when you do that, people lose their benefits....This is true for food stamps (SNAP) as well as Medicaid."
