Across the United States, many families and individuals struggle with food insecurity. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps alleviate this issue by enabling participants to stretch their food dollars and purchase healthier foods. And SNAP incentive programs take it a step further – financial incentives encourage SNAP participants to buy more fruits and vegetables, which not only helps families eat healthier food options, but also strengthens local economies by generating higher sales and job growth.
Working with community partners, government officials and local business owners, we can boost local economies and reduce food insecurity within our communities and across the nation.
