UMass Study on Food Stamps

A study was conducted by UMass Amherst students on the homeless/low-income population of Amherst, MA. The purpose of the research was to analyze how individuals felt towards SNAP (food stamp) benefits in relation to purchasing organic and having their nutritional needs met. 

The goal of the intervention also was to generate awareness of how benefits such as SNAP need to be improved if a stable population is meant to be produced by such benefits.
