The Trump administration’s federal food assistance reforms will impact 700,000 people nationwide in 2020. The administration’s goal is to return the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, known as SNAP, to its intended purpose as temporary help in tough times. The initial cuts will impact thousands of New Jersey residents between the ages of 18 to 49 who have no dependents.

NJTV News Correspondent Joanna Gagis spoke with Carlos Rodriquez, who runs the Community Foodbank of New Jersey about its impact.
