Abstract

This study examines the current political climate's effect on perceptions revolving around the SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), also known as CalFresh, among immigrant groups located in San Diego County, California. Through a review of background information, primary source analysis (qualitative semi-structured interviews with officials, non-profit organization leaders and employees) and analysis of existing secondary research (nationwide and California-specific SNAP enrollment numbers), this study examines how the hostility and changing policies around welfare policy and SNAP impacts immigrant groups and their willingness to enroll in the program. It also examines the historical circumstances that affect perceptions towards the SNAP program today.

This research provides planners with an understanding of the additional difficulties that immigrant groups face that can help aid and inform food policy and other related decisions with economic development, our built environment and social equity.

The study uses California Health Interview Survey data from the slide presentation: How Proposed Changes to the ‘Public Charge’ Rule Will Affect Health, Hunger, and the Economy in California.
