Feeding the Crisis tells the story of eight families as they navigate the terrain of an expanding network of food assistance programs where care and abandonment work hand in hand to regulate people on the social and economic margins. Amid calls at the federal level to expand “work for food” requirements for food assistance, Maggie Dickinson shows us how such ideas are bad policy that fail to adequately address hunger in America. Feeding the Crisis brings the voices of food insecure families into national debates about welfare policy, offering fresh insights into how we can establish a right to food in the United States.
