SNAP Michigan


September 18th, 2018


After September 11, 2001, Jeremy Huffman and Adam Ingrao felt compelled to act. They joined the military to serve their country. But after their service concluded they sought their next mission, which they found through agriculture and providing healthy food to their community.

As farmers and healthy food advocates, they discuss how their work supports families who participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and specifically the families they have worked with in Flint, Michigan, dealing with the lead crisis.

“It’s not just about access to food; it’s about access to hope.”

Adam Ingrao
