Academy Provides USDA with Feedback on Proposed Rule

06/17/2020 - The Academy is committed to improving the health of Americans by ensuring access to a nourishing, safe and affordable food supply.

In comments submitted today to the Office of Employment and Training for the Food and Nutrition Service Division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Academy stated its support of the SNAP Employment and Training changes included in the proposed rule. These changes provide modest program improvements and may help some participants find and keep jobs while addressing some of the problems that E&T programs face in engaging and supporting participants.
