SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program): This program provides financial assistance to help low-income people buy food.

WIC (Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children): This program provides nutritional support for pregnant women, new mothers, and children.

Soup kitchens and food banks: Many communities have soup kitchens and food banks that provide free or low-cost meals to people in need.

TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families): This program provides financial assistance to low-income families with children.

Head Start: This program provides education, health, and nutrition services to low-income children and their families.
