"Find out why the food-stamp program is crucial to ensuring a healthy future for all Americans.

Inspired by the courageous cast members of Secret Lives of Americans, Pivot has teamed up with a crew of trailblazing organizations to create One Secret, Many Lives, a four-part video series that sheds light on several of the issues—from food insecurity to student debt—highlighted in the show.

In the third episode of One Secret, Many Lives, former food stamp beneficiary Gabrielle Pace shares her story. In conversation with Wholesome Wave's Michel Nischan, Pace explains the crucial role that the food stamp program plays in alleviating hunger for America's most vulnerable citizens.
