Food Stamp Information in Plain English
SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program), the new name for the USDA food stamp program has created clear English, low literacy brochures for interested consumers. They are free for the asking, and some items are available in Spanish as well as English. We have to applaud this effort. The brochures use short sentences. However, I think some of the vocabulary could be simpler. In any case, you and a group to which you or your students belong may be interested in distributing this information.
