Poverty, hunger, and food insecurity disproportionately affect Americans who have communicative, mental, or physical disabilities. For these children, adults, and elders, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) serves as a vital support. This webinar will highlight the current status of food insecurity among persons with disabilities, the role of SNAP in the safety net for people with disabilities, and recommendations for strengthening SNAP’s supports for this population. The webinar will accompany the release of a new FRAC report, SNAP Matters for People with Disabilities. 


The webinar will be closed-captioned for the hearing impaired.
