What is SNAP?
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps, is America’s largest safety net program. More than 40 million Americans rely on SNAP to eat.

Who receives SNAP (food stamps)?
Over 40 millions Americans rely on SNAP to have enough to eat. Three-quarters of households receiving SNAP have a child, elderly individual or person with disabilities in the home. Vulnerable households, including single-parent families in poverty, experience much higher rates of food insecurity than the general population.

Why make produce affordable?
When people can afford produce, they buy it. And when the millions of Americans struggling with poverty eat more fruits and vegetables, we see immediate improvements for families and farmers—and enormous long-term gains for public health, local economies, and the environment.
