How well do you understand the food supplement programs offered through the USDA?? These are some valuable programs available for those in need. I am attaching a link to a great blog with helpful information! For example . . .
Is this Fact or Fiction? The majority of SNAP households do not receive cash welfare benefits.
This is FACT! Less than 10 percent of all SNAP households received Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits and another 5 percent received State General Assistance (GA) benefits. About 24 percent of SNAP households received Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits and over 22 percent received Social Security.
