The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has launched a new campaign that is designed to help more people get to know SNAP a little better.

Since it was launched in the early 1960s (known then as the Food Stamp Program), the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) has proven to be the singularly most effective anti-hunger program in the country.
