Long-term Benefits of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program
White House (au)
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is the cornerstone of U.S. efforts to alleviate hunger by supplementing the food budgets of low-income households. The large majority of SNAP recipients are children, working parents, elderly Americans, and people with disabilities. SNAP has also played an important role in lifting millions of people -- especially children -- out of poverty. This report provides an overview of the problem of food insecurity in the U.S. and the important role that SNAP plays in addressing it. Research shows that SNAP is highly effective at reducing food insecurity, and in turn has important benefits for low-income families, especially for children. These include improvements in short-run health and academic performance as well as in long-run health, educational attainment, and economic self-sufficiency. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
