Here’s the latest San Diego Explained, our partnership with NBC explaining why certain things in San Diego are the way they are. It airs every Tuesday during NBC 7/39’s 6 p.m. newscast.
This week spawned from our recent special report about some social welfare programs in San Diego, including food stamps. For the television piece, we broke down food stamps — where does the money come from, and why has San Diego’s participation rate been so low for years?
In the piece, you’ll see Supervisor Greg Cox and local advocate Jennifer Tracy, outreach manager for the San Diego Hunger Coalition.
