DES and ADE have been fantastic to get benefits out to families. Ashley will talk about a possible expansion through the CR but can you share anything you would do different if it happened?

Oops, Ashley got it!

do you know if retailers would be able to track P-EBT transactions on their monthly statements, separately from regular SNAP transactions?
Angie Rodgers

Kids deserve to be fed. This program had huge success because everyone worked with that assumption and didn't require cumbersome applications or confusing eligibility processes!

USDA extending school meals has not needed Congressional authority to this point Jesse. So no, not legislation but rather administrative policy.

That is a fantastic question and I would love to hear everyone's ideas about how public policy can solve food insecurity and poverty!
