Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a federal program funded by the U.S government aiming to give food assistance to its eligible beneficiaries. It prioritizes low-income individuals, children, people with disabilities, and senior citizens to provide food necessities. The main purpose of the program is to maintain the food stability of every beneficiary.
SNAP serves as the largest nutritional program by the federal government. This program was supervised by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and local SNAP Offices for each country state.
Based on USDA, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program helps over 46 million eligible beneficiaries every year. Furthermore, over $75 billion were spent upon the implementation of the said program. From the data, SNAP already helped and continuously assisted millions of American individuals and families.
