SNAP: Building a Healthy Foundation Today and Tomorrow

In this report, “SNAP: Building a Healthy Foundation Today and Tomorrow,” we highlight SNAP’s impact on health throughout the lifespan, the staggering avoidable health- and education-related costs of food insecurity across the nation, recent research linking SNAP participation and reduced health care expenditures, state and national level data documenting better educational outcomes associated with SNAP, and the ways in which SNAP is a work support helping families with low wages and/or volatile hours put food on the table.
