Every five years, Congress is required to reauthorize the food and nutrition policies housed in the United States Depart of Agriculture (USDA); it does this in the massive package of proposals dubbed “the Farm Bill.” For FMI’s members, the centerpiece of the Farm Bill is reauthorization of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).
