The Massachusetts Law Reform Institute (MLRI) coordinates the Massachusetts SNAP Coalition. This is a coalition of anti-hunger agencies, health care and homelessness providers, faith-based organizations, community action programs and legal services advocates. State agency staff from DTA, and the Department of Public Health, as well as USDA's Northeast Regional Office staff frequently attend. Formed in 2000, the Coalition meets monthly, by Zoom on the 4th Tuesday of the month. Coalition members share updates on state and federal SNAP policy, child nutrition, WIC and other anti-hunger programs that affect Massachusetts households.
If you would like to receive email updates on SNAP and child nutrition program policy changes, announcements of Coalition meetings or trainings, and state and national legislative action alerts, contact: Pat Baker at [email protected] or Vicky Negus at [email protected].
