The Massachusetts Law Reform Institute coordinates the Food 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. DTA, DPH and other state agency staff frequently attend. Formed in 2000, the Coalition meets regularly in Boston. Sister organizations now host SNAP Coalition meetings bi-monthly or quarterly in Central and Western MA.  Coalition members share updates on state and federal SNAP policy, child nutrition, WIC and other anti-hunger programs that affect Massachusetts households. The Coalitions regularly discuss and track systemic issues to bring to the attention of state and federal agencies.

If you would like to receive email updates on SNAP and child nutrition program policy changes, announcements of Coalition meetings or trainings, as well as state and national legislative action alerts, contact:
