The spread of COVID-19 has unleashed a health and economic crisis of unprecedented scope. This disaster has highlighted the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps, and its ability to quickly deliver aid to families and stimulus to the economy. Economists estimate that 14 million workers will lose their jobs by the summer, even with a sizeable stimulus package. SNAP serves a diverse group of women and families, with women making up 63 percent of adult beneficiaries. Policymakers must focus both on immediate expansions to SNAP to help people put food on the table, and additional changes that will reduce food insecurity during a recession and future economic crises.
