USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) works to end hunger and promote nutrition through the administration of 16 federal nutrition assistance programs including WIC, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and school meals. In partnership with state and tribal governments, FNS’ programs serve one in four Americans during the course of a typical year. Working with our public, private, and non-profit partners, our mission is to increase food security and reduce hunger by providing children and low-income people access to food, a healthful diet, and nutrition education in a way that supports American agriculture and inspires public confidence.
The FNS 101 fact sheets provide a basic overview of FNS’ programs and activities. Please contact the FNS Division of External and Governmental Affairs at email@example.com with questions or for more information.
