Abstract

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is a vital federal food assistance program under The Farm Bill that offers benefits usable as cash for the purchase of food by lower-income individuals. For lower-income families, SNAP benefits help provide assistance to consume heathy foods. However, current benefits from SNAP are insufficient to support a healthy diet recommended by federal nutrition guidelines (MyPlate). We estimate the funds required to support a MyPlate diet and the current budgetary shortfall in the SNAP program needed for recipients to adhere to a nutritionally sound diet.
