Federal Nutrition Program

Nutrition Program

Federal policies have been created to provide help to hungry individuals, families and children. While two most commonly known programs are SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Programs) and WIC (Women, Infants, and Children), dozens of programs exist under the headings of food distribution and child nutrition.

There is large agreement that some temporary safety net for those who have met with hard times is necessary, responsible, and beneficial. Federal food and nutrition programs are the results of an educated public participating in the democratic process.  You can let your voice be heard to help shape policies that you believe will benefit you, your loved ones, and your neighbors in times of need.
