SNAP (food stamps) is the cornerstone of the nation’s nutrition safety net.
Project Bread is dedicated to removing barriers and increasing access to SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, formerly known as food stamps). The program helps low-income workers stretch their food budget, buy healthy food, stay independent, and maintain their dignity. Through our FoodSource Hotline, Project Bread provides over 46,000 callers a year with information about SNAP and helps them with the application process. GettingSNAP.org—a bilingual resource created by Project Bread—helps 650,000 unique visitors annually determine their eligibility. And SNAP is good for local economies: every SNAP dollar spent generates $1.84 of economic activity.
