Josef Kannegaard Explains the Impact of SNAP Benefits on Homelessness

In 2010, 50% more New York City families received SNAP benefits, or food stamps, than at the start of the recession in 2007. Unfortunately, these benefits are calculated without accounting for the City's higher cost of food, depriving these families of the same degree of relief felt elsewhere. In this video, Policy Analyst Josef Kannegaard describes how families at risk of homelessness are struggling to balance adequate nutrition with housing costs.
