While the purpose of his visit was to learn about specific agricultural training opportunities at this well-regarded institution, I hope he also heard how the college uses a little-known federal program called the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program Employment & Training (SNAP E&T) to help Iowans transition from public assistance into good-paying careers.
SNAP, formerly known as the food stamp program, assists people facing hunger afford healthy food.
