Snap Ed Works - Public Health Institute 1 in 3 children in the US are overweight or obese. 1 in 5 families struggle with food insecurity--not knowing from one day to the next whether their families will have enough to eat. SNAP (food stamps) provides families with support in affording food; SNAP-Ed, the nutrition education program, helps SNAP and low-income families find, buy and prepare healthier foods on their limited budgets. From schools, to the YMCA, to farmer's markets, SNAP-Ed works.
