The national average SNAP beneﬁt is a modest $2.03 per person, per meal. That’s simply not enough for people to feed themselves and their families with dignity.
And, SNAP plays a critical role in lifting millions of people out of poverty. That is why MAZON works to protect and strengthen SNAP, because to eat fully, freely, without stress or shame, meeting people in the wholeness of their needs and identities – that is what we all deserve.
