(If you can only read one of the links above, I suggest you look at the one about South Carolina headlined “SNAP pushing for public awareness.” It’s terrific.)

So thank to all who participated. Thanks to all who donated to finance the trips. Thanks to those behind the scenes who sent media advisories (Mary Ellen) and did research (Judy Jones) and helped, in the dead of winter, to make last week one of the most productive outreach weeks in SNAP’s recent history!
