SNAP Research

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly the Food Stamp Program) serves as the primary federal nutritional safety net program in the U.S. and has been in existence for more than 40 years. In fiscal year 2011, the program served about one in seven Americans or nearly 45 million people.

Given that SNAP plays an important role in helping households be more food secure, faculty at the Interdisciplinary Center for Food Security conduct research on various aspects of the program.
