SNAP: Myths vs. Facts

The SNAP Alumni project champions successful Americans who once received food stamps but who are now leaders in their communities in government, business, sports, education & the arts. With a temporary lift from this government program that continues to help feed millions of Americans every day, these people have persevered to accomplish great things.  

Now they make America stronger every day.  Read their stories; tell us yours.
