Beyond the Curve: Dr. Peter Lurie's COVID-19 Blog


Congress is currently negotiating the next COVID-19 relief package, and lawmakers somehow continue to disagree about the need for nutrition assistance. It is hard to understand how Congress could let so many families go hungry, and even more unfathomable when we remember that we have been asking this same question for months.

It's not as if Congress doesn’t have a powerful, proven tool to address this hunger crisis. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the nation’s largest nutrition assistance program, providing nine times the number of meals served by food banks and pantries.
