Why lawmakers must improve SNAP


The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as SNAP, is the most effective anti-hunger program in the United States. In 2022, the federal program helped an estimated 40 million people put food on the table during tough times.

For every meal the Feeding America network of 200 food banks provides, SNAP provides 9. SNAP benefits are delivered monthly through electronic benefits transfer (EBT) cards which can be used to purchase groceries at retailers nationwide.
