Blue Apron for SNAP? The Trump administration recently proposed replacing a portion of SNAP benefits with Harvest Boxes that contain staples that are produced in the U.S. Proponents claim that this will be a cost saving, nutrition boosting, change. Opponents claim it will be a disaster and that the system is working well as it is. Who is correct? What, if anything, should be done to reform our food assistance programs? https://www.agri-pulse.com/ext/resources/pdfs/Americas-Harvest-Box.pdf https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/13/well/eat/food-stamp-snap-soda.html https://reason.com/archives/2018/02/24/usdas-harvest-box-food-shipping-proposal https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2018/02/21/blue-apron-for-food-stamps-already-exists-and-some-recipients-hate-the-powdered-milk (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2018/02/21/blue-apron-for-food-stamps-already-exists-and-some-recipients-hate-the-powdered-milk/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.0b2f2064c28b) http://thehill.com/opinion/healthcare/375994-snap-reform-could-protect-44-million-americans-from-heart-disease
