Nutritional Assistance

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides modest but critical food assistance that helps millions of families put food on the table and helps kids get the nutrition they need to grow up healthy and learn in the classroom. Nearly 9 in 10 SNAP recipients live in households where one or more members are disabled, elderly, or a child. Nonetheless, the Trump budget would slash SNAP by nearly one-third, and the congressional budgets are expected to make similarly draconian cuts. A cut of this magnitude could eliminate nutrition assistance for more than 8 million households by 2027.

These cuts will fall particularly hard on communities of color: More than one-quarter of people receiving SNAP are African American, and 17 percent are Hispanic. The vast majority—57 percent—are female.
