What is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)?

What is SNAP? SNAP is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program for Needy Families. As a 90’s baby, I grew up calling this Food Stamps. However, SNAP is formal terminology.

SNAP provides nutrition benefits to supplement the food budget of needy families so they can purchase healthy food and move towards self-sufficiency.

SNAP is a national program that is there for families in need of food. To receive SNAP benefits, you and your family must qualify in your state.
