www.snaptohealth.org is a new interactive website made to improve the nutrition and health of Americans enrolled in SNAP, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
This program is something that is long overdue and very much welcomed! The site offers resources to people receiving SNAP; it is not just about getting and how much, it offers ways to get involved. Getting involved with our food is something many have not been into these days, as statistics show. Buying and cooking our food are activities to become involved with for self-esteem and quality of life.
This is a big deal. Why? Because home cooking is a sign of self-respect.
Being enrolled in SNAP can be a way of learning about your food and reconnecting with your kitchen and cooking. There are many positive aspects to consider in these circumstances. If you happen to be one of the many in this program, look at it as a learning opportunity and take advantage of the resources at your disposal.
