A History of the Food Stamp Program

I invited you to take a few minutes to learn about our nation's food stamp program. Understanding the poor and the plight of those who almost have enough. This video is a proud moment in American history where our nation's leaders saw a need and addressed it through compassion rather than through the politics of exclusion and nationalistic pride.

To me, this was and continues to be one of our country's shining moments with the creation of this social program.

A special thanks to Aaron Krager over at Faithfully Liberal for this post.
