The article “Federal Food Programs” by SNAP matters because it is helping to reduce the poverty level in the U.S. The food stamp was born in the late 1930s and is still in affect today. This program provides food for the less fortunate. This matters to me because I feel depressed for people who have to wonder how they are going to survive the next day and this program helps them survive by feeding them. This matters to the world because this program is setting an example for other countries to help the less fortunate. This maters to education because it pushes students to get an education to be able to have a well paying job and being self dependent. In conclusion the food stamp makes a difference in our community today.
