What is SNAP?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as the Food Stamp Program) helps families and low income people buy the food they need to have good health. First put into operation in 1939, SNAP, the United States' food stamp program, is still in use today. Its goal is to provide people earning little to no income with a means of purchasing food. The program is mainly funded by the federal government, with each state carrying out its own operations.

Who can receive SNAP?

SNAP is based on income and expenses. To find out more, visit your local Department of Economic Security office or visit USDA for more information.

How to apply:

Visit the USDA for more information regarding the application process, or go to your local DES office.

Champions for Change

What is a Champion Mom?

Champions for Change are people who are dedicated to helping their families eat more vegetables and fruits and be more physically active. They are also involved in making healthy changes in their neighborhoods.

Small Changes Add Up to Big Wins!

Making changes to eat healthier and be more physically active can have lasting effects on your health.

Many people need to see changes in the mirror, on the scale, or in the way their clothes fit in order to stay motivated to eat healthy and be more active. The good news is that small changes really do add up in a big way-especially if you keep at it. Consistency is the key to seeing results, so make sure you don't give up too soon. Change for you and your family could be just around the corner!

What's Happening

Children's physical activity habits take after their role models. Parents are the most important role models for young children and can shape their behaviors as they grow. Physical activity can be worked into each day and involve the whole family. You can create a healthy and active lifestyle for everyone.
