SNAP – Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the largest federal nutrition assistance program. SNAP provides benefits to eligible low-income individuals and families via an Electronic Benefits Transfer card. This card can be used like a debit card to purchase eligible food in authorized retail food stores.

The White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health was held in September 2022.

The goal of the Biden-Harris Administration is to end hunger and increase healthy eating and physical activity by 2030.

The Conference focused on the following 5 Pillars:

1. Improve food access and affordability

2. Integrate nutrition and health

3. Empower all consumers to make and have access to healthy choices

4. Support physical activity for all

5. Enhance nutrition and food security research

To find out more on how the USDA is working to support these goals, follow the link below.
