North Carolina Food and Nutrition Resource Programs

SNAC logo

North Carolina’s State Nutrition Action Coalition (SNAC) is a state-level collaborative with active representation from state agencies and nonprofits that implement the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) programs. Together, the SNAC partnering organizations reach people throughout their life span, providing food benefits, nutrition education, healthy community changes, and obesity prevention services to reduce food insecurity and improve the quality of life of North Carolinians.

The NC Food and Nutrition Resource Programs guide provides a snapshot of fourteen different USDA FNS programs available in North Carolina. These programs provide a vital source of support and act as a stimulus for local economies.  This resource guide is designed to be used by anyone that directly works with people who may benefit from knowing more about these USDA programs and how to access them.   NC Food and Nutrition Resource Programs guide is available in a downloadable print version below and through the USDA programs listed.
