Undeserving: SNAP Reform and Conceptions of the Deserving Poor (Hardcover)
Email or call for price.
This book explores attempts to reform the SNAP program and argues that many recent reform efforts are based on conceptions of the undeserving poor rather than data about SNAP recipients. It warns that if states are allowed greater flexibility SNAP could be reformed in a way that significantly reduces enrollment and leaves many without a safety net.
