Every year, AARP Foundation helps millions of struggling older adults 50 and over win back opportunity. We couldn't do it without the generous support of individuals and institutions.

SNAP Primer: What Is the Benefit?

And why don't more people enroll?

What's being done?
In its latest outreach effort, the USDA published a tool on its Food and Nutrition Service website that helps users locate the closest store that welcomes SNAP. A map pops up, flagged with stores, when you enter a street address.

You can enroll online at the AARP Benefits QuickLINK or check out the USDA’s prescreening tool to determine eligibility.

Any other benefits?
USDA touts SNAP as both a social safety net program and an economic stimulus effort. The agency estimates that every $5 in new food stamp spending generates $9 in economic activity.
