About the SNAP:

In 2008, the U.S. Congress changed the name of the Food Stamp Program to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

The new name better reflects the goal of the program. It helps to provide healthy food to low-income families with children and vulnerable adults. In addition, the term “food stamps” is outdated, since DES replaced paper coupons with more efficient electronic debit cards.

Research shows:
– poor diets contribute to serious health problems in adults, especially the elderly;
– poor diets can cause impaired brain development in children, creating a greater risk of educational failure; and
– healthy food can lead to better school performance for children and better health outcomes for both children and adults.
