Over 600,000 people are released from state and federal prisons every year in the United States. Programs like SNAP (Food Stamps) are available to help some formerly incarcerated individuals purchase groceries during their reentry period and beyond. In Tennessee, about 47% of people who are released from prison are convicted again within 3 years. Food assistance programs can help reduce this number by providing a stable source of food for people upon release. Join us for a discussion on eligibility for formerly incarcerated individuals, how they can apply, and what we can do to advocate for program expansions that support people transitioning out of the prison system.
