Report: SNAP provides most nutrition assistance to children
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps) provides more nutrition assistance to children and is a critical foundation for children’s health and well being, the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities said in a report released today.
In 2016, SNAP will help about 20 million children each month — about one in four U.S. children — while providing about $30 billion in nutrition benefits for children over the course of the year, the report said.
