The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) delivers more nutrition assistance to low-income children than any other, making it the nation's largest child nutrition program. snap_and_kids_01_ig.png snap_and_kids_01_t.png
SNAP lifts millions of households out of poverty. SNAP kept about 10.3 million people out of poverty in 2012, including about 4.9 million children and 2.1 million out of deep poverty. snap_and_kids_02_ig.png snap_and_kids_02_t.png
SNAP reaches millions of children who need food assistance. In a typical month, SNAP currently serves about 20 million children - roughly 1 out of every 4 children in the U.S. and 1 out of 3 pre-school children. snap_and_kids_03_ig.png snap_and_kids_03_t-01.png
SNAP helps families with children afford food. After families start receiving SNAP, they are more likely to report having to report having enough money for food. snap_and_kids_04_ig.png snap_and_kids_04_t.png
Children who receive SNAP do better in school. SNAP participation can improve students' reading and math skills, and increase their chances of graduating from high school. snap_and_kids_05_ig.png snap_and_kids_05_t-04.png
Early access to SNAP can improve long-term health and economic outcomes. Adults who had access to SNAP as young children were healthier and had better economic outcomes. snap_and_kids_06_ig.png snap_and_kids_06_t.png
