Food and Nutrition Programs

Food and Nutrition Programs is a designated program area at DSS that focuses on increasing healthy habits by providing resources to acquire the necessary foods to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Food and nutrition is the way we fuel and energize our bodies. The program consists of the following specialized areas:
  • SNAP-Education
  • SNAP Outreach
  • Disaster SNAP
  • Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program
  • Healthy Bucks

These specialized areas work together to help improve the overall health and wellness of South Carolina’s citizens through a variety of resources, partnerships, and support efforts.
