> Thursday, Feb. 19 -- The University of Hawaii Office of Public Health Studies, School of Social Work, Center on the Family and the Public Policy Center present "The Dynamics of SNAP Participation During Periods of Macroeconomic Distress: From Stagflation and the Double Dip to the Great Recession" from 3 to 4:15 p.m. at George Hall 301 on the UH Manoa Campus, presented by Dr. Lloyd Grieger. During the Great Recession and the sluggish recovery that followed, participation in the federal food assistance program, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, increased to historic levels. In the policy realm the explosion in participation is often portrayed as a symptom of increased dependency on public assistance. However, little is actually known about individuals’ lifetime participation, which is required in order to differentiate between new program participants and ‘dependent’ returners. This project relies on data spanning over 40 years to uncover the extent to which the Great Recession coaxed new versus return participation in SNAP among adults, whether the demographic profiles of new and return users differed, and whether this has changed over time. Lloyd Grieger is assistant professor of Sociology and Global Affairs in the Department of Sociology and the Jackson Institute for Global Affairs at Yale University.
