Earlier this month, the Department of Agriculture announced a pilot program that will give participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) a way to purchase their groceries online. The two-year trial provides low-income families in seven states with a system to have SNAP-eligible items delivered to their homes through retailers like FreshDirect, Amazon, Safeway and ShopRite and to pay for them using federal benefits. While a number of factors could prove challenging, such as consumer habits, associated costs and internet access, this program (if expanded nationally) could provide the more than 43 million Americans who receive SNAP assistance greater access to healthier food. (The Atlantic CityLab, January 17) Learn more about strategies for improving access to healthy foods in Enterprise's 2014 report Food at Home: Affordable Housing as a Platform to Overcome Nutritional Challenges.

Perhaps this emergent church is a spinoff of the "Jesus Movement" in the 70's, an inspirational application of Schaffer's influence, a journey to new things in order to catch others for the faith
