Food & Nutrition

There are several food and nutrition programs throughout different areas of the budget that offer food, financial assistance for purchasing food, or other types of nutritional guidance for families and children.

The food and nutrition programs for families and children in the budget include the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP or "food stamps"), food programs offered through schools, after-school programs and through summer camps, as well as the Women's, Infants, and Children (WIC) Program, and food banks.
