Bryan Parker is a student in the Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation Culinary Trade Program. He provided a stirring testimony on the importance of SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) in front of the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee in Washington DC on September 15, 2017.
