Household food insecurity status in the United States is ascertained by a battery of closed-ended questions. The authors, Christian A. Gregory and Travis A. Smith, posit that the monthly nature of benefit receipt from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) creates experiences of food hardship, which become salient in the context of SNAP receipt, and, in turn, exert influence on the response to food security questions.

"In my youth, we moved a lot and I experienced many different states and American subcultures. We often lived with other single-mother families and met a wide variety of people. In my teens, I was fortunate enough to spend a summer in Europe and my love for exploring different cultures was cemented. I knew I wanted to work in a field that allowed me access to people from around the world in a way that promoted the best globalism has to offer."

Five Minutes with APPAM Student Member Rebecca Miller

"I realized that I loved working in environmental fields as a freshman in college. After graduation, I moved to Washington, D.C., and worked as a Science Policy Fellow for the Science and Technology Policy Institute. In supporting a project on local adaptation planning for the Obama Administration, I realized that the academic literature had only limited information as to why municipalities designed adaptation plans or even how to define a “good” adaptation plan."
