‘The Lempert Report’: Ohio’s Stand on SNAP Program Is Simply Offensive
About This Video Series
“The Lempert Report” is a video series that features national food trends analyst Phil Lempert, also known as the “Supermarket Guru.” The videos appear Monday through Thursday on the Retail & Hospitality Hub and Tuesday through Friday via The Hub’s daily e-newsletter, “Retail Best Practices.” In the videos, Lempert comments on various issues affecting food and food retailing.
In this video of “The Lempert Report,” Lempert takes the Ohio Senate to task for adding to its budget proposal a provision requiring the state to cut off food stamp assistance for poor Ohioans if their households save up to $2,250 or more. Lempert wonders what effect a regulation like this would have on people and supermarkets as well.
