Looking back on the last several years, I might claim that my family and I have had it pretty hard. However, when I needed to look up SNAP to see what it stood for, I was hit with the stark reality: my kids and I have been richly blessed.
SNAP is a Federal nutrition program (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), and nearly half of all of SNAP participants are children. SNAP is currently at risk of having its funding drastically cut, which would directly impact millions of children and families in the US. In fact, more than 46 million Americans (most of whom are seniors, children, or people with disabilities) rely on SNAP to feed their families.
No child should have to spend his days hungry.
