The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps millions of families put food on the table. It is a critical program in providing women, LGBTQIA+ people, and their families with the nutrition assistance needed to support their health and well-being. SNAP not only promotes better nutrition and reduces food insecurity, it also frees up money for those struggling to make ends meet to spend on other necessary costs, like medical care.
Unfortunately, time limits in SNAP harm women, LGBTQIA+ people, and their families. Because of SNAP’s importance, Congress should protect and strengthen SNAP.
