More About SNAP

When we hit tough times many of us are lucky enough to have parents, siblings, friends and neighbors who can help us through; and many of us have done that for others, giving of ourselves to help friends and neighbors in need.

For some, that support doesn’t always exist, so as a nation we have created a way to ensure no one in America has to be severely hungry and undernourished. Maybe you lost a job, got sick, or need to care for your family. Everybody needs a helping hand sometimes.

We all pay taxes and receive different types of benefits, like unemployment benefits, Social Security, or a mortgage interest deduction. Food stamps are one way to get supplemental money to buy food until you can get back on your feet.
