Abstract

This research examines how the public attitude has an effect on the experience of Latina women using the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). My research focuses specifically on Latinas in the Willamette Valley, Oregon. Using a structural interview format, eleven Latina women currently participating in SNAP were interviewed about their experiences with SNAP. Also a questionnaire was distributed to Western Oregon University students to examine attitudes concerning SNAP. The preliminary results revealed: all eleven women interviewed expressed a negative experience being on the program. Moreover, the data also revealed that all of the mistreated participants were victims of Latino providers.
