SNAP

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. To apply for SNAP in Arizona click here.

Champions for Change

What is a Champion Mom?

A Champion Mom is dedicated to helping her family choose from a variety of vegetables and fruits every day. Champion Moms make vegetables and fruits available throughout the day and let their kids choose which new vegetables and fruits to try. Champion Moms know patience works better than pressure when it comes to trying new foods.

Brighter tables every day.

Keep vegetables and fruits on hand throughout the day to brighten your table. A fruit bowl on the table or cut-up veggies in the fridge are great snacks to have in reach. Kids that come home from school hungry will have easy access to a healthy snack and get the fuel they need to eat smart and play hard.

What's Happening


Kids need a variety of foods to stay healthy. Vegetables and fruits of different colors have different nutrients, so feeding your family different colors of vegetables and fruits not only brightens the family table, it also ensures that everyone gets the nutrients they need. Let your kids pick out a different color of vegetable or fruit the next time you go to the store or farmers’ market. They’re more likely to try something new when they choose it themselves. And the more colors they try, the more nutrients they’ll get!
