The Future of SNAP? Improving Nutrition Policy to Ensure Health and Food Equity.
 A Workshop for Academics, Policymakers, and Community Representatives

Friday May 29, 2015
Alumni House, Toll Room, UC Berkeley
Berkeley, CA, 94704

This interdisciplinary workshop will summarize evidence and research findings on SNAP, identify challenges of current delivery approaches and address recommended actions relevant for the future of SNAP. It will involve panel discussions, including leading researchers from UC Berkeley and other universities, representatives from respected NGOs in the field, representatives from federal and state agencies, and practitioners.

Graduate students working in the area of SNAP (CalFresh), or potentially (depending on submissions) food and nutrition policies more broadly, are encouraged to participate and attend the workshop. Graduate students are invited to submit a paper for the poster session. If selected, you will also be asked to help take notes during the break-out sessions.
