Addressing Health, Hunger, and Poverty: County Approaches to SNAP

Aug. 22, 2018 , 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) serves as a domestic hunger safety net and is the nation’s largest program for reducing hunger. By partnering with counties, multiple state agencies and community organizations, this federal program provides food assistance and education to many low-income individuals and families. In the ten SNAP county-administered states, counties often contribute substantial local funds to administrative and supplemental costs of the program.

Join us on August 22, to learn more about how counties are using SNAP to address poverty and increase access to nutritious healthy foods in their communities. This webinar will feature an overview of the SNAP program, and will highlight county examples of work being done on SNAP through county agencies and local county partnerships.
