SNAP

What is SNAP?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program) helps families and low income people buy the food they need to have good health. First put into operation in 1939, SNAP, the United States' food stamp program, is still in use today. Its goal is to provide people earning little to no income with a means of purchasing food. The program is mainly funded by the federal government, with each state carrying out its own operations.
