What is Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program?

SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is a program established by the U.S. government to help citizens buy the food required for them to lead healthy lives. Note that this program was formerly known as “Food Stamp.” 

As at the time of writing this, over 9.5 million families and children take advantage of this program to buy the food they need, and it is by far the biggest scheme created by the government to reduce hunger in America.

With SNAP, a lot of American citizens have been able to utilize their money for other important alternative uses. For instance, instead of spending all of their income on just food, they can channel some of the monies to cater to utility bills, rent, medical bills, etc.

You can be a benefactor of this great program without stressing yourself one bit. Kindly get in touch with us; we are waiting to be of service to you!
