Food and Nutrition Service
"SNAP offers nutrition assistance to millions of eligible, low-income individuals and families and provides economic benefits to communities. SNAP is the largest program in the domestic hunger safety net. The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) works with state agencies, nutrition educators, neighborhoods and faith-based organizations to assist with eligibility for nutrition assistance so informed decisions can be made when applying for the program to access benefits. FNS also works with state partners and community retailers to improve program administration and ensure integrity."
SNAP is a program that provides individuals with help in applying for food stamps, Medicaid and cash assistance.
