Crop logoKathleen Gorman, Director of the Feinstein Center for a Hunger Free America, discusses the impact of a $200,000 cut in state and federal money on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) outreach efforts in a Providence Journal article dated November 28, 2015.

Last year, the SNAP Outreach Project, which is overseen by Kathleen Gorman, fielded 3,600 hotline calls, visited more than 270 soup kitchens, senior centers, school, and other sites in an effort to help Rhode Islanders qualify for SNAP.

“This will be our test year.  Every week we will have to ask, ‘Can we do this, can we do that?'” Gorman says in the article.  For the full article, please click here.
