Food Stamps Cut and Its Potential Effects

Robert Greenstein is executive director of the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities. Marianne Udow is director of the Michigan Department of Human Services. And Augie Fernandes is president of Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan, a food bank in Detroit.
