Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

SNAP offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families

and provides economic benefits to communities. SNAP is the largest program in the

domestic hunger safety net. The Food and Nutrition Service works with State agencies,

nutrition educators, and neighborhood and faith-based organizations to ensure that those

eligible for nutrition assistance can make informed decisions about applying for the program

and can access benefits. FNS also works with State partners and the retail community to

improve program administration and ensure program integrity.
