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.

Chop Chop Jr. - March 2022 | Special Edition


February 1, 2022 - Vol. 39: Salt!  This month we're offering up our appreciation for the most humble, inexpensive, and vital kitchen ingredient:  salt.  You might not think much about it, but it sure can make the difference between a meal that tastes kind of blah to one that really sings with flavor.  We've got recipes that highlight the craveable flavor of salt (can you imagine popcorn without it?) and experiments, fun facts, and projects that highlight its importance and versatility.  Yes, we're feeling salty!  (But in a good way.)

Inside this issue:

  • Homemade Popcorn
  • How to Taste and Season Food
  • Taste Test
  • Together Time:  Play Dough
  • Craving More Salt?  Try One of These Recipes
